Recently, on Sinopec's annual results teleconference, the company representative answered questions about the oil prices, and said that the future trend of oil prices is still very uncertain, and it is expected to be around $100 this year and $85 next year respectively.
Sinopec, "There are many factors affecting oil prices at the moment, including geopolitics, macroeconomic trends, the implementation of the policy of OPEC+, the strength of the US DOLLAR and so on. We see a lot of uncertainty in the future oil prices. It is impossible to predict the accurate price, but a general trend could be estimated."
According to Sinopec, international institutions generally have a forecast of around $100 this year and around $85 next year in the oil prices. As geopolitical problems and other issues ease next year, oil prices will be lower than this year.
The volatile oil prices in the international market will continue to affect lots of industries and the supply of many 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.
