The reduction behavior of copper (II) oxide (CuO) covered with boron nitride (BN) powder under microwave H-field irradiation was investigated to understand the mechanism of enhanced reduction of CuO in microwave processing. Internal heating using microwave irradiation resulted in a unidirectional diffusion of oxygen from inside the CuO pellet to its outside, and selective heating prevented the oxidization of the BN powder near the CuO pellet. A quantum chemical interpretation of this phenomenon revealed that the microwave H-field couples to the Fermi level electrons of CuO, and the copper-oxygen bond may be cleaved by both microwave energy and thermal energy. As a result, microwave H-field irradiation resulted in a more effective reduction of CuO to copper metal compared to conventional heating.
