A novel method for the rapid preparation of iron oxide-pillared montmorillonite clay using microwave heating is described. The iron oxide pillared clay is progressively reduced in hydrogen at temperatures between 300 and 600°C. The metallic iron formed under reducing conditions is stable to oxygen at room temperature and partially oxidised when heated in oxygen at 300°C.
