Paper Title:
High Surface and High Nanoporosity Boron Nitride Adapted to Hydrogen Sequestration
  Abstract

High surface area nanoporous powders of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) have been prepared from molecular precursors to be used for hydrogen sequestration. The more promising samples were obtained using a precursor derived from trichloroborazine (TCB). The precursor was first reacted with ammonia at room temperature leading to the molecular complex Cl3B3N3H3, 6 NH3 which was heated up to 650 °C under ammonia and then up to 1000 °C under nitrogen, giving rise to a high reactive h-BN powder. This crude powder was stabilised by an annealing up to 1800 °C under nitrogen atmosphere leading to a very stable compound exhibiting a specific area of more than 300 m2·g-1 and presenting a very specific nanometric spherical texture. Some samples were doped with platinum (about 1 wt.%) to enhance the activity of pure h-BN using an original one step synthesis route starting from a mixture of BN and Pt precursors. Attempts to sequester hydrogen into these powders were made successfully at -196 °C under 10 MPa, but the stored amount was only about 0.3 wt.% and the platinum added BN powders did not lead to an enhancement of the storage capacity.
