Abstract: In the present work, effect of the nucleating agent such as TiO2, ZrO2, P2O5, Ye2O3 and CeO2 in single, double, triple and fourth systems on the crystallization behavior of various compositions was studied. Using differential thermal analysis (DTA), the composition of Li2O-Al2O3-SiO2 (LAS) was optimized and the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), three point flexural strength, hardness, thermal shock resistance, and chemical resistance of the most favorable composition were evaluated. The crystalline phase was determined by the x-ray diffractometry. Moreover, the micro-structure of the samples was studied by SEM technique. According to the results, -Eucryptites (high quartz solid solution) was the main crystalline phase and the CTE values of the optimized sample were determined as 1.65-1.93 10-6 in the temperature range of 20-500 oC. Furthermore, three point bending strength ranged from 139 to 155 MPa.
