Microwave-hydrothermal processing has so far been used only to dissolve inorganic solids for chemical analysis. We report herein the use of microwave-hydrothermal processing to synthesize various ceramic powders in binary and polynary systems. We describe the synthesis of some electroceramic powders such as BaTiO3, SrTiO3, Sr0.5 Ba0.5TiO3, PbTiO3, BaZrO3, SrZrO3, Pb(Zr0.52 Ti0.48)O3 and pyrochlore phases with the Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3 and Pb(Zn1/3Nb2/3)O3 compositions by this novel microwave-hydrothermal processing technique.
