In home-style microwave oven, silica-Al powder mixture was ignited among pellets and combustion wave-front propagated to produce Si+AIN+Al2O3 as resultant phases under N2 atmosphere. Without cooling pro-cedure the resultant phases of Si+AIN+Al2O3 continously absorbed microwave and were heated to be syn-thesized into sialon phases. This synthesis rate of sialon phases from silica-Al powder mixture in home-style microwave oven was higher than that in conventional furnace, and total processing time was around 1 hour, which could save energy and cost.
