Hexagonal ferrites, materials widely used for permanent bard magnets, are currently commercially synthesized by multistep ceramic methods. Alternative routes are also multistep as well as being time-consuming and expensive. Teh self-propagating, high-temperature synthesis (SHS) presented here is convenient, quick, inexpensive, and single-step and it enables a range of ferrites, SrxBayFe12O19 (x + y equals; 1), to be prepared. The principles of SHS are briefly explained before the characterization of the reaction products, including their magnetic properties, is described.
