Overview of Silicon Nitride Si3N4

The roble had hit a record low after the West imposed sweeping sanctions on Russia for its aggression in Ukraine. Russia's president recently ordered exports of Russian gas to "unfriendly" countries to be settled in robles. The speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament said Moscow was prepared and could shift supplies to markets such as Asia if Europe refused to buy Russian energy.

European countries, which pay mostly in euros, say Russia has no right to reset contracts.  The G7 rejected Russia's demand and urged companies not to agree to pay in robles, saying most contracts stipulated payment in euros or dollars. Wholesale gas prices in Europe have risen further recently on concerns about potential supply disruptions.

The Kremlin spokesman said, "According to the March 31 deadline set by Russia's president, we are developing all payment methods to get a simple, understandable, and feasible system for relevant European and international buyers,"

The markets and prices of more commodities like the Silicon Nitride, Silicon Nitride Overview, Silicon Nitride Applications, Silicon Nitride Suppliers, Silicon Nitride Price would be affected because of the volatile international political 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.

3) Composite materials: such as metal, ceramic and graphite composite materials, rubber, plastics.

4) Colorless, transparent, self-lubricating and wear-resistant nanoparticle film for advanced surface protection such as mobile phones and automobiles.

5) Ball bearings.

6) Ball valve and parts.

7) Corrosion resistant turbine.
