Summary

A new process was investigated for producing high purity, submicron, nonagglomerated, pressureless sinterable β-SiC powders. The synthesis route utilizes a carbothermic reduction reaction of novel coated precursors. A detailed description of this method is presented. The physical, chemical and crystalline nature of the produced powders and the effect of process variables are discussed.
