Part of the Materials Science Research book series (MSR, volume 17)


The solid-state synthesis of refractory compounds, such as transition metal carbides, borides and nitrides etc., usually requires high temperature furnaces and long reaction times. More innovative methods for the formation of refractory powders include the gaseous reaction of metal and non-metal ions in high temperature environments. Disadvantages of the former method are impure products and inefficient operation, while the latter method deals with complex reactions and expensive equipment.
