This work describes the principal component analysis (PCA) applied to Raman spectra of polycrystalline BaTiO3 as afunction of temperature. During each experiment the samples was continuously heated and the Raman spectrum wasregistered every 0.5 °C at a rate of 0.1 °C min−1. This procedure is applied on samples BaTiO3 compact powder toobtain their thermal behavior from -190 °C to 230 °C. The PCA method was able to distinguish spectral features todetermine the phase transition temperature and the whole thermal history including the structural phase transitionfrom rhombohedra to orthorhombic at -100 °C, orthorhombic to tetragonal at -5 °C and tetragonal to cubic at 121 °C.
