Crystal Chemistry and Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy of Titanium Carbide Precipitates in TiB2
Titanium combines readily with boron, carbon, nitrogen and oxygen to form a variety of refractory compounds. Several have been used in cutting tool inserts — TiC, TiN and TiB2. Although these compounds are generally treated as single-phase materials, they may contain second-phase precipitates which affect their mechanical properties at the high temperatures reached in service.
