Pyrolytic methods of polymers or organic compounds for the synthesis of ceramics have been actively investigated in recent years.1 Various non-oxide ceramics including silicon carbide, silicon nitride, boron nitride, and boron carbide have been prepared by this method. However, boric acid-polyol condensation products have not been considered as a precursor, though they can be easily synthesized by dehydration.
