The use of polymeric precursors for the preparation of ceramic materials is generating a great deal of interest, and silicon carbide (SiC) has been produced by the pyrolysis of several polymers. However, it is desirable to develop precursors that can be prepared with a high polymer yield, are melt-processable, and give a high SiC yield on pyrolysis close to the theoretical maximum that can be obtained (with a low amount of impurities).
