SiC nanowires are prepared by pyrolysis of hexamethyldisilane (HMDS), at 1200 degrees C in a flowing Ar atmosphere. The length of the nanowires is in millimeter scale. Transmission electron microscopy observations indicate that the diameters of the SiC nanowires are in the range of about 8 to 120 nm, and that most of the nanowires have numerous stacking faults. The formation mechanism of the nanowires is proposed.
