Conical Boron Nitride Nanorods Synthesized via the Ball-milling and Annealing Method

Zhang, H Z; Yu, Jun X; Chen, Ying; Fitz Gerald, John


A boron nitride (BN) nanostructure, conical BN nanorod, has been synthesized in a large quantity on Si substrates for the first time via the ball-milling and annealing method. Nitridation of milled boron carbide (B4C) powders was performed in nitrogen gas at 1300°C on the surface of the substrates to form the BN nanorods. The highly crystallized nanorods consist of conical BN basal layers stacked along the nanorod axis. Ball milling of the B4C powders can significantly enhance the nitridation...[Show more]
