Silicon carbide (SiC) nanomaterials are widely investigated due to their unique and fascinating properties such as high strength,
good creep, oxidation resistance at elevated temperatures, chemical inertness, thermal stability and resistance to corrosion.
Numerous applications of SiC nanomaterials such as their use as semiconducting devices, for reinforcement in ceramic composites,
in metal matrix composites and catalytic supports have been investigated worldwide. Sol-gel process combined with the techniques
such as polymer blending is used to fabricate the organic-inorganic hybrid materials for the production of composite nanomaterials
such as SiC. In thesol-gel process and polymer blend technique, sol-gel derived silica was blended with coal tar pitch, polypropylenepolystyrene
blend and polycarbonate to yield silicon carbide nanofibers. Unbleached and bleached soft wood pulps were used as
templates and carbon precursors to produce SiC nanorods. Hydrolyzed tetraethyl orthosilicate, silicic acid was infiltrated into the
pulps followed by carbothermal reduction to form SiC nanorods. We have synthesized SiC from the hybrid of bio-polymer using
sol-gel process via carbothermal reduction. This talk will focus on the synthesis, properties and applications of silicon carbide nano
ceramic materials using different source of polymer/organic waste.
