Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Chernogolovka, Moscow Region, Russian Federation
This paper reviews current research and new approaches in the field of high-melting point (> 2000 °C) compounds such as carbides, nitrides, borides, and oxides. New experimental and theoretical results on the structure, physical and mechanical properties and application of these compounds are described. Manufacturing aspects are reviewed, and understudied research topics are identified.
