KEYSON, D. et al. Synthesis and ceramics processing by domestic microwave oven. Cerâmica [online]. 2006, vol.52, n.321, pp. 50-56. ISSN 0366-6913. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0366-69132006000100007.
The use of microwaves in the processing and attainment of materials has acquired in the last years increasing interest on the part of diverse areas of the knowledge as the chemistry and the engineering of materials. In this direction, especially apparatuses have started to be described in literature as reactors and chambers of processing the microwaves aiming at application in the research and the industry. In particular the use of domestic ovens of microwaves in scientific activities it has if shown of it interests given a series of new applications, simplicity and low cost. The present work reports a device developed from an domestic microwave oven adapted, capable to effect syntheses and solid processing exactly when the involved materials do not possess susceptibility the microwaves. The new device has been used successfully in the metallic oxide synthesis and, in special in the sintering and order of crystalline lattice of thin films.
