Scientists find world’s most heat resistant material

Scientists have identified materials that can withstand temperatures of nearly 4,000 degrees Celsius, an advance that may pave the way for improved heat resistant shielding for the faster-than-ever hypersonic space vehicles. Researchers from Imperial College London in the UK discovered that the melting point of hafnium carbide is the highest ever recorded for a material.



Tantalum carbide (TaC) and hafnium carbide (HfC) are refractory ceramics, meaning they are extraordinarily resistant to heat.

So, let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
Q1. Name the elements, which are recently identified that can withstand temperatures of nearly 4k degree celsius?
Ans1. Tantalum carbide (TaC) and hafnium carbide (HfC)
