Mesoporous silica-carbon nanocomposites (C-SiO(2)) were synthesized for the fabrication of highly crystalline silicon carbide (SiC) nanoparticles and nanofibers via carbothermal reduction. SiC nuclei were introduced into the mesopores as seeds by infiltration of preceramic precursor polycarbosilane (PCS) prior to the heat treatment of carbothermal reduction… CONTINUE READING
