Microemulsions, while prevalent in chemistry, have not been widely used in ceramics. They have advantages as a chemical processing technique in that fine, pure powder may be produced inexpensively. This study outlines a method for producing mullite via a microemulsion. The successful production of mullite however is still being researched. Problems encountered with the reativity of the aluminum ion in the water phase prevented mullite from being produced. Solutions to this problem will be discussed.
