Zirconia-alumina polymer precursor was prepared from zirconium acetylacetonate (ZA). paluminium nitrate (AN), polyethylene glycol (PEG), and ethyl alcohol via an organic-inorganic solution technique. The thermal properties and viscosity of the polymer precursor were measured by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermograbimetric analyzer (TGA), and dynamic viscometer. The vigorous exothermic reaction with volume expansion occurred at $140^{\circ}C$. The volume expansion was caused by abrupt decomposition of the organic group in metal compounds and the metal ions-PEG reaction. The evidences for these reactions were confirmed by FT-IR and $^{13}C$ solid NMR results. The peak intensity at N-O, O-H and C=C decreased with increasing temperature. This indicated that the decomposition of metal compounds and the metal ions-PEG reaction occurred during the vigorous exothermic reaction. At $800^{\circ}C$ for 2 h, the porous powders transformed to the crystalline $ZrO_2-Al_2O_3$ composites.
