Starting nanopowders of TiO2 (anatase 99.7%) and a-Fe2O3 (hematite) were mixed in the weight ratio 60:40 and 40:60. Green samples were sintered in the temperature range 750-1250oC in air. Structural, morphological and electrical studies were carried out using XRD, SEM and EDS analysis and Hall measurements with the aim of analyzing the influence of the starting nanopowder structure on the resulting sample composition, density, grain size and electrical resistivity. Compared to pure anatase samples, the presence of hematite lowered the temperature of completion of the anatase to rutile phase transformation to 850oC. Formation of pseudobrookite was also noted at this temperature. Further increase in the sintering temperature lead to increase in sample density and grain size and decrease in the electric resistivity, Hall coefficient and mobility.
