Fine particle $MgCr_2O_4, ZnCr_2O_4$ and $LaCrO_3$, have been obtained by rapidly heating an aqueous solution containing the corresponding metal (M) nitrate, chromium nitrate and maleie hydrazide in appropriate mole ratios at 375°C. The solution boils, froths and ignites to burn with a frame and yields voluminous chromite powders. Formation of spine1 chromites, $MCr_2O_4$, and pcrovskite $LaCrO_3$ was confirmed by their characteristic powder X-ray diffraction patterns and infrared spectra. The surface area of the chromites ranged from 32 to $72 m^{2/g}$.
