Boron Nitride Nanoparticles: One-Step Synthesis from Single-Source Preceramic Precursors
Boron nitride (B1.0N0.9) nanoparticles have been prepared by the spray-pyrolysis of borazine. Characterization of the B1.0N0.9 nanoparticles by SEM, and HRTEM demonstrated that samples form elementary blocks containing slightly agglomerated nanocrystalline particles with sizes ranging from 55 to 120 nm. Their thermal behavior has been investigated and thermogravimetric analyses of B1.0N0.9 nanoparticles showed that they are relatively stable in air atmospheres.
