Combustion synthesis reactions have been ignited using microwave energy. Carbides, borides, nitrides, silicides, ceramic composites, and cermets have been synthesized. Under suitable conditions reactants were ignited from the center, and the wavefront propagated radially outward. In addition, it has been demonstrated that microwave energy can be used to control the combustion wavefront propagation.
