Paper Title:
Fabrication of Porous Silicon Nitride by Sacrificing Template Method
  Abstract

High performance porous structural ceramics have been widely studied. Silicon nitride is an interesting material for this application because bodies with high mechanical strength, achieved as a result of “in situ” anisotropic grain grown, can be obtained. In this study, Si3N4 bodies with different porosity related aspects (percentage, morphology, etc.) are made using the sacrificing template method, by changing the percentage (vol%) and the drying method of the mixture as well as the sintering time. The porosity, apparent density (Archimedes method), microstructure (SEM) and the mechanical strength (in compression) of these bodies were determined. It was thus possible to relate the type and amount of starch with the porosity and mechanical properties of the bodies.
