Fine Si3N4-SiC composite powders were synthesized in various SiC compositions to 46 vol% by nitriding combustion of silicon and carbon. The powders were composed of α-Si3N4, β-Si3N4, and β-SiC. The reaction analysis suggested that the SiC formation is assisted by the high reaction heat of Si nitridation. The sintered bodies consisted of uniformly dispersed grains of β-Si3N4, β-SiC, and a few Si2N2O.
