Pyrolysis of poly(norbornenyldecaborane) that has been electrostatically spun provides a route to non-woven mats of boron-carbide/carbon ceramic nanofibers with narrow distributions and controllable dimensions (see Figure). This approach allows the fabrication of composite ceramic fibers with varying composition, which could be tailored to suit specific applications.
