Chemical Synthesis of Aluminum Nitride Powders

  • Phillip R. Coffman (a1), William T. Petuskey (a1) and Sandwip K. Dey (a2)


An organoaluminum precursor was synthesized by a low temperature reaction and characterized by NMR, FTIR and mass spectrometry. This compound was pyrolyzed under several experimental conditions to obtain aluminum nitride powders. The pyrolyzed products were subsequently characterized by XRD and SEM. The mechanisms of precursor development and subsequent pyrolysis are discussed.
