Flexible aluminum-doped silicon carbide (SiC(Al)) fibrous mats were synthesized by combining electrospinning and polymer-derived ceramic techniques. The mats consist of three-dimensional network structure with randomly distributed fibers of approximately 1.5 lm diameter. The obtained mats exhibited simultaneous fairly good hydrophobic and lipophilic behavior without the need of any posttreatment. Given the intrinsic oxidation/ corrosion resistance of Al-doped SiC, the ceramic mats obtained here could be very promising for applications in harsh environments.
