Synthesis of Tantalum Carbide/Boride Nano Composite Powders by Mechanochemical Method


Department of Materials Engineering, Malek-e-ashtar University of Technology


In this study, mechanochemcical process(MCP) is applied to synthesize ultrafine TaC powders. In this research, nano powder composite TaC-TaB2 was produced using mixtures of tantalum carbide and boron carbide as raw materials via mechanochemical process. The phase formation characterization during process was utilized by X-ray diffractometry (XRD). The morphology of synthesized powder was studied using scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
