Abstract

The dissociation of silicon carbide in the presence of organic compounds into silicon dioxide and carbon phases above 600 degrees Celsius and 100 MPa was studied. The carbon phases formed were mainly glassy or disordered graphitic carbon while the other was nano- or micro-sized spherical-shaped carbon particles. Observations revealed the possibility of nucleating and synthesizing carbon particles using this process without the assistance of any metal catalysis as well as a diamond seed.
