Abstract

High nitrogen contents inside boron nitride fullerene like multilayered nanocages formed by reacting CNx nanotubes (x≤0.1) and B2O3 in a nitrogen atmosphere at 1985-2113 K was observed. Various studies suggested that the super high pressures were generated inside nanocages, which were responsible for crystallizing gaseous nitrogen trapped within the BN shells. High pressure induced phase transformation of graphitic-like BN into diamond like cubic BN occurs inside the nanocages.
