Abstract
THE PROPOSED WORK WILL EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF HAFNIUM CARBIDE FIBERPRODUCTION THROUGH PYROLYSIS OF ORGANOHAFNIUM POLYMER PRECURSORS. IN THIS CHEMICAL APPROACH TO CERAMIC PROCESSING, THE METHODS TO SYNTHESIZE ORGANOMETALLIC CHEMICALS SUITABLE FOR THE FORMATION OF ORGANOHAFNIUM POLYMERS AND TO FORM POLYMERIC FIBERS WITH AN (-HF-CHF-) BACKBONE WILL BE EXPLORED. THE POLYMERS WILL THEN BY PYROLYZED TO GIVE HFC FIBERS. THEY WILL BE CHARACTERIZED USING X-RAY DIFFRACTION, SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY, SPECTROSCOPIC ANALYSIS, AND TENSILE STRENGTH AND ELASTIC MODULUS MEASUREMENTS.
