Abstract:

Thermogravimetric, roentgenographic and dilatometric analysis methods were used to investigate the process of interaction of silicon with a gaseous medium containing carbon monoxide and nitrogen. The chemistry of the processes which take place and the changes in the latter with increasing temperature were established, in particular the chemistry of silicon oxynitride formation which is characterized by the formation of an intermediate compound -- silicon monoxide, and its subsequent reaction with nitrogen. These findings make it possible to design rational methods of controlling the phase composition of the bond for the production of carborundum refractories by reaction sintering. Author
