(57) Methods of making calcium sulfate whiskers are provided. In one aspect, a method includes autoclaving a slurry of calcium sulfate hemihydrate and water to form calcium ­sulfate hemihydrate ­whiskers in water and microwaving the whiskers to dewater them, wherein the microwaving is effective to prevent a majority of the whiskers from reverting to a dihydrate form. In one aspect, a method includes microwaving calcium sulfate hemihydrate whiskers to form anhydrite calcium sulfate whiskers, wherein the microwaving is effective to remove a substantial amount of chemically bound water from the whiskers.
