Abstract
Content

Areport discusses a model developed to explain the unusual properties of polymer- derived ceramics (PDCs), which are so named because they are made by controlled pyrolysis of cross-linked polymers. PDCs are metastable ceramics that have potential to be further developed into high-temperature materials that can be tailored to have properties needed to perform specific functions. The PDCs studied thus far have comprised silicon, carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen. The unusual properties of PDCs are the following: They bear similarity to both polymers and metallic glasses, even though the pyrolysis temperatures used in producing them are with experimental data.
