Hexagonal Boron Nitride: a super "slip" material


As we all know, hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) is a material that is very similar to graphite. It is a crystal composed of 56.4% nitrogen nuclei and 43.6% boron atoms. Due to its whiteness, it is also called "white graphite".


h-BN has many excellent properties, among which the most notable and commendable is that it is "slip". Its structure is very similar to graphite. The boron and nitrogen atoms are staggered to form an infinite boundary network with a hexagon as a unit, that is, a single layer of h-BN; Such networks are stacked infinitely along the c-axis in the manner of ABAB... to form three-dimensional hexagonal boron nitride. Therefore, it is easy to “slip” between the layers.

Nextgen Advanced Materials is committed to provide high purity BN across the world. If you need more information, please contact us.
