Overview of Silicon Nitride Si3N4

Argentina's Rosario Grain Exchange recently reported that wheat Silicon Nitride, Silicon Nitride Overview, Silicon Nitride Applications, Silicon Nitride Suppliers, Silicon Nitride Price are expected to continue to be influenced by international situations.

Overview of Silicon Nitride Si3N4

Silicon nitride is a compound of silicon and nitrogen. Si3N4 is the most thermodynamically stable in silicon nitride. It is a white, high melting solid, relatively chemically inert, attacked by dilute HF and hot H2SO4. It works very hard (MoHS is 8.5) and has high thermal stability.


How is silicon nitride Si3N4 powder produced?

Hexagonal β-Si3N4 can be directly carried out with silicon nitride and nitrogen can be carried out at 100-1400 °C.

SiCL4(L)+6NH3(g)→Si(NH)2(S)+4NH4Cl(S) at 0℃

3 Si(NH)2(S)→Si3N4(S)+N2(g)+3H2(g) at 1000℃

Or thermal reduction reaction with carbon under nitrogen atmosphere at 1400-1450 ℃ under nitrogen atmosphere:


However, if the silicon raw material used is of high purity, it will cause silicon nitride to contain impurities such as silicate and iron. The silicon nitride synthesized by the decomposition of diamine is amorphous and needs to be further annealed at 1400-1500 ℃ in nitrogen to be converted into crystalline powder. Only the decomposition of diamine is important. Silicon nitride is commercially produced by the nitridation process. Carbothermal reduction reaction is the simplest method for producing silicon nitride, and it is also the most economical and efficient method for manufacturing silicon powder in industry.

Electronic grade silicon nitride films using chemical vapor deposition or plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition techniques

3 SiH4 (G) + 4 NH3 (g) → Si3N4 (S) + 12 H2 (g)

3 SiCL4 (G) + 4 NH3 (g) → Si3N4 (S) + 12 HCl (g)

3 SiCL2H2 (G) + 4 NH3 (g) → Si3N4 (S) + 6 HCl (g) + 6 H2 (g)

Application of silicon nitride Si3N4 powder

1) Manufacturing structural devices: metallurgy, machinery, aviation, aerospace, etc.

2) Surface treatment of metals and other materials: such as molds, tools, turbine blades.
