A solid-state process for formation of boron nitride nanotubes
The formation of boron nitride (BN) nanotubes via a solid-state process is demonstrated. The nanotubes are produced by first ball-milling hexagonal BN powder to generate highly disordered or amorphous nanostructures, followed by annealing at temperatures up to 1300 °C. The annealing leads to the nucleation and growth of hexagonal BN nanotubes of both cylindrical and bamboo-like morphology. Unlike previous mechanisms for nanotube formation, the reordering and solid-state growth process of our...[Show more]
