Ceramic substrates (Al2O3·MgO, CA6, CaZrO3, AZT (Al2O3 based substrates containing ZrO2 and TiO2)) were interacted with liquid Armco iron under a low oxygen partial pressure in the heating microscope. No noticeable dissolution of the ceramic substrates and reaction was observed for most of the substrates. Furthermore, deposition of SiO2 and Fe was found on the cross section between iron and these substrates. However, for the substrate AZT, a reaction layer of complex composition was found on the interface between the iron sample and the AZT substrate. After all experiments, the total number of inclusions in the iron samples greatly decreased. The deposition, agglomeration of inclusions, and the evaporation of some elements were the factors for the inclusions decreasing. Furthermore, the stability of oxides consisted of substrates under low oxygen partial pressure was confirmed by the thermodynamic calculation.
