It is composed of nitrogen atoms as well as boron. Powder has a white color. With four variants of boron, 43.6% and 56.4% respectively (HBN), RBN (RBN) and CBN (CBN), the chemical composition of powder is: cubic boron nuitride [CBN] and wurtzite Boron (WBN).
Which property does boron powder have?
Boron Nitride powder resists chemical corrosion. It is also resistant to acid and water. In hot concentrated alkali, the boron/nitrogen bond can be broken. The air temperature above 1200degC causes Boron Nitride to begin to oxidize. It has a melting temperature of 3000degC. The point at which it starts to sublime is just below 3000degC. At 2700degC it will begin to decay in vacuum. Boron nitride is slightly insoluble when it comes to hot acid but insoluble when you use cold water.
The properties of powdered boron carbide are generally better than those of carbon materials. The hexagonal boron-nitride has a low friction coefficient and good temperature stability. It also offers high resistance to thermal shock, high strength, low thermal conductivity, high resistance to corrosion, resistance to microwave radiation, and transparent Transparent Infrared.
What preparation methods are used to make boron Nitride powder?
Most boron-nitride powder is made with a graphite type structure. This is commonly called white graphite. One is of diamond type. This type can be used to convert graphite to graphite, and vice versa.
High pressure and high temperature synthesis
Wentorf first synthesized cubicBN in 1957. If the temperature rises to or exceeds 1700degC, and the pressure drops below 11-12GPa (or close enough), pure hexagonal boron nitride can be transformed into cubic boron nitride. The use of catalysts is a great way to lower the pressure and temperature transitions. Because of the complexity and cost involved in its preparation, industrial applications are limited.
Chemical vapor synthesis
Sokolowski was able to use pulsed plasma technology in 1979 to make cubic boron Nitride (CBN) films under low temperature and pressure. Because the equipment and process are simple, it was easy to develop quickly.
Carbothermic synthesis technology
Boric acid is used to prepare silicon carbide’s surface. It also uses carbon as a reduction agent. Ammonia nitriding is then performed in order to produce boron. It is highly pure and useful for composite material preparation.
Sputtering with ion beams
Particle beam sputtering deposited technology produces a mixture of hexagonal and cubic boron nutrides. While this process has less impurities than other methods, it can be difficult to manage the reaction conditions. This makes the product morphologically unpredictable. Research on this method holds great promise for future development.
