Advanced ceramics according to chemical composition
Advanced ceramics can be divided into two categories based on their chemical composition:
Alumina (Al2O3), zirconium oxide (ZrO2), magnesium oxide (MgO), calcium oxide (CaO), cerium oxide (BeO), titanium dioxide (ThO2), etc;
2. Non-oxide ceramics
Carbides, borides, nitrides, silicides, etc.
For example, silicon nitride and silicon carbide.
