The direct plasmodynamic synthesis of β-SiC ultradispersed cubic silicon carbide under the action of supersonic pulse flow of carbon-silicon electric-discharge plasma onto a copper barrier in the argon atmosphere has been realized. A powdered product with a high β-SiC content has been obtained, whose single crystals have a mean size of about 100 nm and natural crystallographic habit close to the ideal one.
