Synthetic Methods

A variety of synthesis methods are available to us or we can work with you depending on the requirements. Our expertise is particularly in the following areas:

via Schlenk- and glove box technique

  • Precursors for CVD and syntheses of polymers for non-oxidic and oxidic high-temperature stable ceramic materials of the systems
    • SiC, SiCO, SiCN, SiBCN, SiBCO, SiAlCN(O), TiCN, BCN, CN
  • Development of new polymer systems such as polytitanium- polygallium- polyindium compounds and polymeric carbonitrides

Chemical modification of commercial silicon containing systems like:

  • Polysilanes
  • Polysilazanes
  • Polysiloxanes
  • Ormocers®
  • Ormosils®
  • and further metal organic polymers
  • Inorganic membranes with high thermal and chemical resistance for ultra-filtration and gas separation on the basis of the following materials:
    • Al2O3, MgAl2O4, ZrO2, C, SiC, Si3N4, SiCO, SiCN, SiBCN
  • Sol-gel-layers for optical applications
From sol-gel to xero-gel
  • e.g. binary, ternary and multinary material systems like:
    • AlN, BN, B4C, SiC, Si3N4, TiN, TiCN, SiCN, SiBCN, sialones, alones, etc.
  • Preparation of amorphous especially glass-like and crystalline partially crystalline inorganic-non-metallic materials for high temperature applications plus preparation of composite materials
