In the present work, the conventional method of increasing the efficiency of solid-phase synthesis of lithium-zinc ferrites that involves multiple intermediate grinding of briquetted reaction mixtures annealed at high temperatures is compared with a new radiation-thermal (RT) method using a high-power pulsed beam of accelerated electrons for heating of reaction mixtures. An analysis of the TG(M)/DTG(M) curves recorded in a magnetic field demonstrates that the efficiency of Li0.3Zn0.4Fe 2.3O4 synthesis from Li2CO3-Fe 2O3-ZnO mechanical mixture at a temperature of 700 °C during 120 min is equivalent to thermal annealing at 800 °C, but with the triple annealing duration.
