The interactions between carbon and nitrogen in liquid silicon have been studied experimentally. High purity silicon was melted in silicon nitride crucibles under an Ar atmosphere with a graphite slab inserted in the crucible prior to melting as a carbon source. The system was thus simultaneously equilibrated with Si3N4 and SiC. Samples were extracted in the temperature range 1695–1798 K and analyzed using Leco.

It was observed that the simultaneous saturation of nitrogen and carbon caused a significant increase in the solubilities of both elements. The interaction parameters were derived as The solubility of carbon in liquid silicon as a function of temperature and nitrogen content was found to follow: And the solubility of nitrogen in liquid silicon found to follow:
