Samples of porous silicon carbide were obtained using sucrose or carbon and aerosil or silica mesoporous molecular sieves (SBA-3, SBA-15, KIT-6 and MCF). Fibers content in silicon carbide samples is higher when the mesopore surface area of carbon materials derived from carbon-silica composites is lower. Based on the found correlation between the morphology and porosity of SiC and mesopore surface area of the carbon component in the composites, a templating action of carbon in carbothermal reduction was suggested.
