Facile synthesis of hexagonal boron nitride fibers and flowers

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) fibers and flowers were synthesized with a facile synthesis route. The precursor was obtained as an intermediate material by the reaction of KBH4 and NH4Cl at 120����C for 48��h. h-BN was obtained by heating the intermediate material at 1250����C for 10��h. The sample obtained was characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), Fourier transformation infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), thermogravimetry (TG/DTA) and environment scanning electron microscopy (ESEM), which matched with h-BN. ESEM image indicated that the diameter of the BN fibers is mainly in the range of 1-2����m. �� 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
