Dielectric materials are needed in many electrical and electronic applications. So, basic characterizations need to be done for all dielectrics.PbNb2O6(PN) is ferroelectric and piezoelectric only in its orthorhombic phase, with potential high temperature applications. So, its rhombohedral phase, frequently formed as an undesirable impurity in the preparation of orthorhombic PN, has been ignored with respect to possible dielectric characterizations. Here, essentially single phase rhombohedral PN

Variations, with temperature, of relaxation time constant (τ), AC and DC conductivity, bulk resistance, activation energy and capacitance have been explored from our IS data.
