Calcination is a process of heating a substance under controlled temperature and pressure it could in the presence or absence of oxygen. Among many applications of calcination, one of the applications is the conversion of a radioactive metal compound to its oxide. This process can be done using an electric furnace, but because of many disadvantages of furnace-like low heating efficiency and heat loss, the microwave is used as an alternative heating medium to perform calcination. The principle of microwave and dielectric loss factor is the major concern highlighted in this paper... The main concern here for calcination is the conversion of the metal compound to its oxide using oxide as a feed material. Various combinations were tested while performing the experiments. The data represented in this paper are similar to  the original data
