Microwave-hydrothermal (M-H) processing was compared with conventional-hydrothermal (C-H) processing in the crystallization of BiFeO3 and CsAl2PO6 phases. The presence of the microwave field led to accelerated kinetics of the crystallization of both these phases as detected by powder X-ray diffraction. The acceleration of reaction rates under microwave field is expected to lead to energy savings during ceramic processing.
