SHS Synthesis of the Materials in the Ti-Al-C-N System Using Intermetallics
Materials in the Ti-Al-C-N system due to their specific heterodesmic structure show pseudo-plastic properties. Direct synthesis of these compounds from respective elements requires high-temperature and long-lasting reaction. Presented work shows attempts to prepare some ternary compounds using self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS). Intermetalic precursors, TiAl and Ti3Al, were used to synthesize fine and sinterable powders of 211 and 312 complex structure materials.
