Zirconium diboride (ZrB2) is an appropriate and attractive option among high temperature ceramic based composites.
The production of zirconium diboride as a member of high temperature ceramics family has some difficulties such as obtaining full density (nonporous structure) and high fracture toughness (the ability to capture energy that postpones the fracture and breaking the material).
A team of Japanese scientists compared the characteristic properties of theoretical freestanding silicene to epitaxial silicene they had produced on a zirconium diboride substrate.
The main objective of the research was to obtain the license for the production of zirconium diboride (ZrB2)based composites through a method that can be industrialized.
Zirconium diboride (Zr[B.sub.2]) ceramic matrix composites are attractive candidates for hypersonic vehicles' structure members.

He and his colleagues grew a thin layer of silicon on top of the ceramic material zirconium diboride. X-rays shined on this thin layer of silicon revealed a honeycomb of hexagons similar to the structure of graphene.
"We use aluminum to make alumina or aluminum nitride, depending upon the reaction that takes place, or we use zirconium to make zirconium nitride or zirconium diboride," says Michael Hollins, a vice president at Lanxide.
Therefore, the researchers tried to synthesize zirconium diboride as a high temperature ceramic with nanofibrous structure.
