Overview of Silicon Nitride Si3N4

Now China has become a powerful country in science and technology, but do you know how powerful China's technology is? The manned space station alone is not enough, and now it has successfully broken through the key technology of nuclear fusion, even leading the world by 15 years. Does this mean that China is not far from the artificial sun? It turned out that the fully superconducting tokamak nuclear fusion experimental device developed by China at the Hefei Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences successfully achieved a record of 101 seconds of continuous operation at 120 million degrees Celsius, and broke the world record. Compared with the previous record in South Korea, China has time has been directly extended by 5 times, and it seems that we are one step closer to the practical stage of artificial sun.
The success of nuclear fusion technology will lead to the development of Silicon Nitride, Silicon Nitride Overview, Silicon Nitride Applications, Silicon Nitride Suppliers, Silicon Nitride Price.

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.

Chemical Composition of Silicon Nitride Si3N4 Powder


Because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, there is a shortage of natural gas supply. At the same time, other renewable energy sources cannot produce enough electricity, so electricity prices have soared in many countries of the world. For this reason, I assume the supply and prices of the Silicon Nitride, Silicon Nitride Overview, Silicon Nitride Applications, Silicon Nitride Suppliers, Silicon Nitride Price would keep being influenced by the high energy prices.
