Pure Boron Nitride Nanowires produced from Boron Triiodide

Chen, Yong; Zhang, H Z; Chen, Ying


A thick layer of pure boron nitride (BN) nanowires with a uniform diameter of 20 nm was synthesized for the first time using a CVD process with a new precursor of boron triiodide (BI3). Transmission electron microscopy revealed a nanocrystalline structure in the BN nanowires and the absence of any catalyst particle. Some BN nanowires self-assembled into thick threads up to several hundred micrometres long on top of the nanowire layer. The nitriding reactions and lack of catalyst suggest new...[Show more]
