Hexagonal aluminum nitride (AlN) crystals were synthesized by microwave method with ammonium chloride used as an additive. Starting mixtures consisted of Al powder, NH4Cl, and urea as a fuel taken in a 1 : 3 : 1 ratio. The microwave oven operated at 630 W, the synthesis time was 10, 30, 60, and 120 min. The results showed that the pure AlN powder with regular and fine grains could be obtained in 30 min. The synthesized powders were characterized by TGA/DTA, XRD, FTIR, UVVIS, SEM, and TEM.
