My friend and I were discussing internal combustion engines and we spoke of different materials used to manufacture engine blocks. He mentioned silicon nitride and the associated advantages of the material. Out of curiosity, I'm trying to do some research on synthesizing silicon nitride and the pros and cons of manufacturing engine blocks with silicon nitride, especially since I don't know much about composites and ceramics. Any information or links on this subject is appreciated.
