carbide (WC) has been obtained from bulk
by in situ reduction and carbonization reactions at low temperature (∼ 600 °C) by taking Mg as reductant and acetone
as carbon source. It was aimed to elucidate carburization behavior of
powder and to establish optimal conditions for the synthesis of nanocrystalline WC. The role of reaction time on the synthesis of WC has been investigated and discussed. The synthesized powders were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction, differential thermal analyzer (DTA), thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA).
