Abstract
The chemical industry Is quite capable of supplying high purity ceramic precursors on the largest scale, whether as powders, colloidal slurries or preceramlc polymers. Particularly InterestIng, now that "high-tech" ceramics are already entering automobiles in Japan, and will soon be demanded everywhere on a massive scale for automobiles and trucks, is the case of silicon nitride. On the basis of its physical properties, it had been proposed 36 years ago to be a prime candidate material for engine applications. Howe~·er., due to the nature of the sociotechnical- political set-up, the economic, large-scale, high purity powder synthesis, the without-which-nothing, was not addressed in the USA. Lack of market so far is the main reason why the chemical engineering aspects of ceramic precursors have not been sufficiently emphasized, but, with the recent developments, it will be Interesting to see how the community adjusts as major Improvements in the way materials Innovation• (information openness and flexibility In technical-networking, time-horizons, legal issues etc) become necessary In the USA.
