In this study, the carbothermic reduction of magnesia under vacuum is experimentally investigated. The phase, surface morphology, and composition of the condensates obtained were examined by means of scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The experimental results indicate that the small temperature gradient can improve the direct recovery under the appropriate condensation temperature, and the reversion reaction occurs during the end of condensation due to containing MgO in the profile of the condensation but without MgO in the undersurface of the condensation.
