Magnetic fields effects on liquid-phase reaction sintering on MnBi were investigated. The liquid-phase reaction was so fast even in a zero field that the fraction of in-field sintered ferromagnetic MnBi phase was independent of the external magnetic field. However, the ferromagnetic MnBi crystals in the in-field sintered sample were oriented along the external magnetic field direction. The Lotgering factor of the in-field sintered sample was 0.99. This result indicated that almost completely anisotropic MnBi phase could be obtained by in-field liquid phase reactive sintering.
