    Polymer-Derived Ceramics: 40 Years of Research and Innovation in Advanced Ceramics

    by Paolo Colombo, Gabriela Mera, Ralf Riedel, Gian Domenico Sorarù:


    Preceramic polymers were proposed over 30 years ago as precursors for the fabrication of mainly Si-based advanced ceramics, generally denoted as polymer-derived ceramics (PDCs). The polymer to ceramic transformation process enabled significant technological breakthroughs in ceramic science and technology, such as the development of ceramic fibers, coatings, or ceramics stable at ultrahigh temperatures (up to 2000°C) with respect to decomposition, crystallization, phase separation, and creep. In recent years, several important advances have been achieved such as the discovery of a variety of functional properties associated with PDCs. Moreover, novel insights into their structure at the nanoscale level have contributed to the fundamental understanding of the various useful and unique features of PDCs related to their high chemical durability or high creep resistance or semiconducting behavior.

Die Forschungsarbeiten konzentrieren sich auf die Entwicklung neuartiger Strategien zur Synthese von anorganischen, oxidischen und nichtoxidischen Materialien mit Eigenschaften, die über den gegenwärtigen Stand der Technik weit hinausreichen. Im Zentrum des Interesses stehen hochleistungsfähige oxidische und nichtoxidische Keramiken mit hervorragenden Funktionen in Bezug auf thermische Stabilität, Härte und elektronische Struktur. Synthesemethoden wie das Polymer-Pyrolyse-Verfahren, die Sol-Gel-Technik sowie die chemische Gasphasenabscheidung (CVD) und neuartige Hochdrucksynthesen werden hierzu gezielt weiterentwickelt.
