Mullite-zirconia composite powders were prepared by the combustion of an aqueous heterogeneous redox mixture consisting of $AI(NO_3)_3, Zr(NO_3)_4/ZrO(NO_3)_2$, silica fume and urea/diformyl hydrazine at $500^o C$. X-ray diffraction data showed that a large amount of tetragonal zirconia existed in the composite powders in spite of high temperature calcination. Milled composite powders showed enhanced densification compared to the unmilled powders and the microstructure of the sintered $(1600^o)$ compacts showed the presence of spherical zirconia grains in intergranular positions along with elongated mullite grains.
