<p> In this paper, single-crystalline alpha-Si3N4 nanospheres with uniform size of similar to 50 nm are successfully synthesized by using a radio frequency (RF) thermal plasma system in a one-step and continuous way. All Si3N4 nanoparticles present nearly perfect spherical shape with a narrow size distribution, and the diameter is well-controlled by changing the feeding rate. Compact Si3N4/PR (PR = phenolic resin) composites with high thermal conductivity, excellent temperature stability, low dielectric loss tangent, and enhanced breakdown strength are obtained by incorporating the as-synthesized Si3N4 nanospheres. These enhanced properties are the results of good compatibility and strong interfacial adhesion between compact Si3N4 nanospheres and polymer matrix, as large amount of Si3N4 nanospheres can uniformly disperse in the polymer matrix and form thermal conductive networks for diffusion of heat flow.</p>
