The carbothermic reduction method to produce TiB2 is detailed. Milling and characteristics of the powder are discussed. Sinterable TiB2 powder produced by the carbothermic reduction method can be competitive with other advanced ceramic powders such as Si3N4, or partially stabilized ZrO2 The availability of sinterable TiB2 powder can play an important role in advanced and engineered ceramics in the future.
