Producing piezoelectric ceramic capacitors
Barium carbonate is widely used in high-voltage AC capacitors, ultrasonic transducer devices and piezoelectric ceramic capacitor manufacturing.
The piezoelectric effect was first discovered on quartz crystal by the Curie brothers in 1880, the crystal which can produce the piezoelectric effect was called piezoelectric crystal. The class of piezoelectric crystal is single crystal, such as quartz (SiO2), sodium potassium tartrate (it is also known Luose salt, NaKC4H4O6 * H2O), BGO (Bi12GeO20) and the like. Another class of piezoelectric crystals is called piezoelectric ceramics such as barium titanate (BaTiO3), lead zirconate titanate [Pb (ZrxTirx) O3, code PZT], magnesium niobate lead zirconate titanate of Japan made [Pb (Mg1/3Nb2/3) O3 added PZT, code PCM], manganese, antimony, lead zirconate titanate of China made [Pb (Mn1/2Sb2/3) O3 added PIT code PMS] and so on.
Piezoelectric ceramic materials have three major categories:
PZT materials (PbZrTiO3): titania, zirconia, lead oxide, strontium oxide, niobium oxide, lanthanum oxide and the like.
PMN class materials (PbNbMgO3): niobium oxide, magnesium oxide, lead oxide, strontium oxide, lanthanum oxide and the like.
Barium titanate type materials (BaTiO3): titanium dioxide, barium carbonate, strontium carbonate.

Barium carbonate has only one stable form (aragonite-type structure) and temperature of precipitation has no effect on crystal form, unlike that of calcium or magnesium carbonates.
Barium carbonate, BaCO3, also known as witherite, is a white powder that is soluble in acids,with the exception of sulfuric acid.It has a melting point of 174°C and is used in television picture tubes, rodenticide, optical glass and ceramic flux.

Barium carbonate is found in nature as mineral witherite. The compound has many major commercial applications in brick, glass, ceramics, oil-drilling, photographic and chemical industries. It is mixed with wet clay to immobilize many water-soluble salts in making uniform red bricks. In the glass industry, barium is added to glass as barium carbonate or barium oxide to improve the refractive index of optical glass; also to promote sintering and lower the viscosity of melted glass to make glass bead formation easy. It is used in the manufacture of television picture tubes and photographic paper. Another important application involves its use as a fluxing ingredient in ceramic industry for enamels, glazes and ceramic bodies. Barium carbonate is used in oil-well drilling to insolubilize gypsum and inhibit coagulation; in ferrous metallurgy for steel carburizing; in chlor-alkali cells for treating salt brines to remove sulfates; and to make ferrite, and barium titanate. Many barium salts are prepared from barium carbonate.

Air & Water Reactions
Barium carbonate is insoluble in water and soluble in most acids, with the exception of sulfuric acid.
Salts, basic, such as Barium carbonate, are generally soluble in water. The resulting solutions contain moderate concentrations of hydroxide ions and have pH's greater than 7.0. They react as bases to neutralize acids. These neutralizations generate heat, but less or far less than is generated by neutralization of the bases in reactivity group 10 (Bases) and the neutralization of amines. They usually do not react as either oxidizing agents or reducing agents but such behavior is not impossible.
(INGESTION ONLY): excessive salivation, vomiting, severe abdominal pain, and violent purging with watery and bloody stools; a slow and often irregular pulse and a transient elevation in arterial blood pressure; tinnitus, giddiness and vertigo; muscle twitchings, progressing to convulsions and/or paralysis; dilated pupils with impaired accommodation; confusion and increasing somnolence, without coma; collapse and death from respiratory failure and cardiac arrest.
Non-combustible, substance itself does not burn but may decompose upon heating to produce corrosive and/or toxic fumes. Some are oxidizers and may ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). Contact with metals may evolve flammable hydrogen gas. Containers may explode when heated.
Poison by ingestion, intravenous, and intraperitoneal routes. Human systemic effects by ingestion: stomach ulcers, muscle weakness, paresthesias and paralysis, hypermotility, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, lung changes. Experimental reproductive effects. Incompatible with BrF3 and 2- furanpercarboxylic acid. See also BARIUM COMPOUNDS (soluble).
