CeCl3·7H2O, CaCl2·2H2O and C2H2O4·2H2O were used as raw materials to prepare Ca2+-doped cerium oxalate by the coprecipitation method. The Ca2+-doped cerium oxalate was calcined to obtain Ca2+-doped cerium oxide precursor. Ca2+-doped γ-Ce2S3 was achieved by vulcanizing precursors in an Ar atmosphere using CS2 as the sulfur source. Pigments were characterized by X-ray diffraction(XRD), energy dispersive spectrometer(EDS), color analyzer, UV-Vis spectrophotometer and thermogravimetric analysis-differential thermal analysis(TG-DTA). The results show that Ca2+-doping can lower the synthesis temperature and improve the thermal stability of pigments in air. When the ratio of n(Ca2+):n(Ce3+)≥0.16, pure phase γ-Ce2S3 can be obtained by vulcanizing at 900 ℃ for 150 min. The synthesis temperature of doped γ-Ce2S3 decrease by 300 ℃ compared with undoped γ-Ce2S3. When the n(Ca2+):n(Ce3+) is 0.64, the oxidation exothermic peak of Ca2+-doped γ-Ce2S3 increases from 490.6 to 541.0 ℃.
