Large-quantity Production of High-yield Boron Nitride Nanotubes

Chen, Ying; Conway, Martin; Williams, James; Zou, Jin


A high quantity and yield (up to 85%) of boron nitride (BN) nanotubes have been produced using a mechanothermal method. Elemental boron powders were first mechanically milled at room temperature in NH3 atmosphere and subsequently heated in N2 gas at 1200°C for up to 16 h. The BN nanotubes obtained have either multiwalled cylindrical or bamboolike structures, suggesting different growth processes. The high formation yield of BN nanotubes is due to a high density of nanostructured nuclei created...[Show more]
