BAO, X. ... et al., 1999. Simultaneous formation of SiC and Si3N4 by pyrolysis of a polymeric precursor. Philosophical Magazine Letters, 79 (7), pp.453-457.
A new method that can be used for the synthesis of SiC± Si3N4 composites
using a single polymeric precursor is described. A co-polysilane± cyclodisilazane
precursor was prepared and characterized. Subsequently, it was heated to 1650ë C
to form SiC and Si3N4 simultaneously. The ceramic products have been characterized
using X -ray di raction and secondary-ion mass spectrometry.
