In the current context, the term hydrothermal technology of material processing refers to a broad set of technologies and processes of material preparation under the action of pressure and temperature (PT) in a closed system to prepare materials with desired functional properties, to meet the industrial demand. A new generation of researchers now considers hydrothermal processing a simple, inexpensive, and fast technique with a high product yield, which requires mild to low temperature/pressure. Indeed, the hydrothermal processing of advanced functional materials has significant advantages such as high product purity and homogeneity, crystal symmetry, narrow particle size distribution, and a wide range of chemical compositions. This article provides an overview of the chemistry of hydrothermal processing of materials, the apparatus used, the synthesis of advanced inorganic materials, including zeolites, and processing of advanced ceramics, bioceramics, and composites. Detoxification and disposal of problematic industrial, nuclear, military, and municipal wastes by hydrothermal treatment, one of the most important areas of research in the field, is also discussed.
