Abstract

The use of preceramic polymers in diverse ceramic applications requires control of a complex set of chemical characteristics to ease processing and develop suitable ceramic properties. The desirable characteristics of a good precursor system are controllable viscosity (preferably without the use of solvents), inhibition of curing during fabrication followed by rapid curing, minimal release of volatiles during curing, high ceramic yield, and controllable final composition and stoichiometry.

This paper describes the use of chemical concepts to synthesize, modify, and manipulate polymeric precursors to silicates and the importance of curing (crosslinking) mechanisms and processing conditions as critical elements in developing ceramic matrix composites.
