Summary

Ion exchange of K+ for Na+ was investigated in a sodium aluminate system (β-alumina). Electron microprobe analysis was used to evaluate the extent of the interdiffusion involved. Results showed an enhancement of K+ penetration into the samples heat treated using microwave energy when compared to conventionally processed samples.
