Summary

Highly porous, biomorphous TiC/C-ceramics were prepared from carbonized pine wood templates (CB-templates) by reactive Ti-vapor infiltration at temperatures between 1400–1600°C. The reactive TiC-phase formation and micro-structure evolution during processing was investigated by SEM-, XRD- as well as density and porosity measurements. The reaction kinetics as well as the morphology of the obtained TiC/C-ceramics will be compared with the formation of biomorphic SiC-based ceramics.
