    The optimum conditions of aqueous silicon slips for slip13; casting was achieved by employing various experimental13; techniques like zeta potential, /fl size13; distribution, sedimentation, viscosity and rheological13; measurements as a function of pH of the slips in the pH range of 2-11. Silicon suspensions display a maximum in zeta potential values and a minimum in sedimentation height and viscosity in two pH regions of 4-5 and 8. The slips behaved as near-newtonian at these pH values up to a solid loading of 52 wt% and as non-newtonian with thixotropic behaviour above this solid loading. Samples with highest green density (68%) were produced from 72 wt% solid loaded slips which were conditioned at a pH of 8 and milled for 26 h. The cast bodies of these slips were nitrided to obtain reaction bonded silicon nitride products which were also characterised.13;
