Summary

Vapor-phase reaction routes were used to prepare ceramic materials. It was demonstrated that the thermal decomposition of organometallic compounds can yield controlled-size SiC powders in the particle-size range from 4 to 0.1 m̈m. The second route involves the thermal decomposition of polymers prepared by plasma polymerization. Control of polymerization conditions can significantly affect the composition of the ceramic produced on pyrolysis of the polymeric precursor.
