Carbide, Nitride and Boride Materials Synthesis and Processing
Alan Wesley Weimer
Chapman & Hall, 1997 - Science - 671 pages
Many of the advanced ceramics being developed today are boride, carbide and nitride materials. These are targeted for applications in both electronic and structural markets. This book aims to address methods for the synthesis of these materials. This text is intended as an overview of the subject and is suitable for practitioners in the industry as well as those looking for an introduction to the field. The subject matter ranges from introductory material properties and applications to various methods of synthesis including pre- and post-synthesis processing. Although most of the text is concerned with the synthesis of powders, chapters are included for other materials including whiskers, platelets, fibres and coatings. Specific safety considerations are discussed for each part of the text. The book is split into nine parts covering a wide range of topics under the heading and includes an appendix comprising selcted data for crystallographic, thermodynamic, thermal, mechanical, electrical, magnetic and chemical properties of some boride, carbide and nitride materials.
