When growing one-dimensional (1D) nanomaterials via the vapour-liquid-solid (VLS) model, the substrates usually need to be coated with a layer of catalyst film. In this study, however, an effective approach for the synthesis of boron nitride (BN) nanowires directly onto commercial stainless-steel foils has been demonstrated. Growth occurs by heating boron and zinc oxide (ZnO) powders at 1100 °C under a mixture of nitrogen and hydrogen gas flow (200mlmin-1). The stainless-steel foils played an...[Show more]
