The bamboo first transforms into porous charcoal by carbonization in argon atmosphere. Gaseous Si was infiltrated into porous charcoal and reacted with solid charcoal to form SiC. Few SiC was produced on the surface below 1400℃ (the melting point of Si is 1410℃). More SiC was formed with increase of reaction time and temperature. The depth of reaction layer in the axial direction is 3.1 mm and 1.35 mm in the radial direction after reaction for 12 hr at 1500℃. Porous SiC preserves the structure of bamboo and has three distinct pore sizes of about 50 μm, 10-20 μm and 0.5 μm. The strut thickness is 2-3μm and the grain size is 0.5 μm. It has low density (bulk density : 1.03 g/cm3), high porosity (open porosity : 66.5 %) and the specific BET surface area is 18.5 m2/g. The flexural strength of porous SiC synthesized at 1500℃ for 8 hr are 12.8 ± 1.7 MPa in the axial direction and 42.5 ± 4.5 MPa in the radial direction. The compressive strength of porous SiC are 120 MPa in the axial direction and 75 MPa in the radial direction. Advisor Committee none - advisor
