Nd0.7Ba0.3MnO3 is synthesized via microwave processing of neodymium, barium, and manganese nitrates in solution. It is shown that microwave processing allows the temperature and duration of Nd0.7Ba0.3MnO3 synthesis to be reduced as compared to the conventional ceramic route. The physicochemical properties of the resultant material compare well with those of samples prepared by ceramic processing techniques.
