Formation of titanium silicon carbide (Ti3SiC2) by mechanical alloying (MA) of Ti, Si, and C powders at room temperature was experimentally investigated. A large amount of granules less than 5 mm in size, consisting of Ti3SiC2, smaller TiC particles, and other silicides, have been obtained after ball milling for only 1.5 h. The effect of excess Si in the starting powders on the formation of Ti3SiC2 was studied. The formation mechanism of Ti3SiC2 was analyzed. It is believed that a mechanically induced self-propagating reaction is ignited during the MA process. A possible reaction mechanism was proposed to explain the formation of the final products.
