Dilatometric study of Ti3SiC2 synthesis from TiC/Si starting powders

Abstract [en]

In this study MAX phase ceramics were obtained by pressurless heat treatment of TiC and Si powders. The aim of the project was to attain a better understanding about the reaction mechanisms that takes place in the system. Different initial ratios with silicon excess in the TiC/Si powder mixture were used to synthesize Ti3SiC2. Pellets from each powder were heat treated at 1500ºC in Argon atmosphere dilatometer without holding times. The sintering environment effect was evaluated using a graphite furnace and a graphite-free furnace (Al2O3) in the dilatometer for the heat treatment. The chemical reaction mechanisms were investigated according with the volume changes obtained from graphite-free furnace dilatometric curves and the respective temperatures where such changes took place. After heat treatment the samples were evaluated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and x-ray diffraction (XRD). It was obtained 70Vol% of Ti3SiC2 and 15Vol% of SiC for 3TiC:2,2Si initial ratio sintered at 1500ºC. It was found that there is an effect of the carbon in the temperature synthesis. A chemical reactions sequence was suggested according with phases present dependent on temperature treatment.
