Boron nitride is a super strong material with extremely high heat resistance and chemical stability, which has been widely used in many fields in recent years.

1. With the continuous progress of technology, people's requirements for material properties are also increasing. In this context, boron nitride has gradually attracted people's attention as a material with excellent properties. Boron nitride has a high melting point, hardness, and chemical stability, so it has many applications in many fields. This article will focus on introducing the basic properties, preparation methods, application fields, and future development trends of boron nitride to provide a reference for research and application in related fields.

2. Basic properties of boron nitride

Boron nitride is a new type of material with a hexagonal crystal structure similar to graphite, and its basic unit is the molecular structure of B12N12. This structure gives boron nitride excellent properties such as high melting point, hardness, and chemical stability. According to different preparation methods and additives, boron nitride can present different colors, including white, black, and gray. In addition, boron nitride also has excellent electrical insulation, thermal conductivity, and corrosion resistance, making it widely used in many fields.

3. Preparation method of boron nitride

The preparation methods of boron nitride mainly include high-temperature and high-pressure synthesis methods and chemical vapor deposition methods. Among them, the high-temperature and high-pressure synthesis method is one of the most commonly used preparation methods. This method synthesizes B and N elements under high temperature and pressure conditions to obtain boron nitride powder. The law of chemical vapor deposition is to react gases containing B and N elements under high-temperature conditions to generate boron nitride thin films. The particle size, purity, and morphology of boron nitride powder or film obtained by different preparation methods vary, so choosing the appropriate method according to the actual application needs is necessary.
