Summary

Boron-containing ceramics originating from polymeric precursors have been characterized with respect to density, pore structure, phases, grain size, and chemistry at various stages of processing. The evolution of pore structure has been the focus of this study since these characteristics define many properties and maximum permissible sample dimensions for specific processes.
