Solid rate metathesis reactions offer a rapid, low external energy route to a range of inorganic ceramic materials including nitrides, oxides, pnictides, chalcogenides, silicides and borides. The reactions can be filament or bulk thermally initiated and often proceed with a thermal flash or propagation wave. The reactions can follow either an ionic metathetical or a reductive recombination pathway.
