“White Graphene”: Industrial Applications and Recent Research related to Hexagonal Boron Nitride and Boron Nitride Nanotubes
The technology scouting services arm of Del Stark Technology Solutions has published a new technology briefing on the industrial applications for Hexagonal Boron Nitride (h-BN) and Boron Nitride Nanotubes.
Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN), also referred to as “white graphene”, is a single atomic layer of sp2 hybridized boron and nitrogen organised in a honeycomb lattice. h-BN and graphene have similar structures, however h-BN has properties that have interested the research community.
Hexagonal boron nitride has many attractive properties such as a wide band gap, direct band structure, it is dielectric, and it can be used as a tunneling barrier. h-BN can be used in many applications such as gas barriers, high heat resistance, ultrathin layered insulators, cosmetics and makeup, grinding and cutting, non-wetting applications, crucibles for molten metals, lubrication, coatings and thermal management.
This 159-page report highlights recent academic research papers published in 2015 and early 2016 that could be of interest to companies interested in using hexagonal boron nitride and boron nitride nanotubes for applications including heat dissipation, the construction of novel devices, coatings, antifouling, reinforcement and ceramics. The report reviews 120 academic research and 93 patents plus highlights recent news and research projects of interest in Europe and the USA.

Experts were asked for their views on the commercial viability of hexagonal boron nitride and if the material could replace graphene. Experts come from organiations such as Saint-Gobain Advanced Ceramics LLC, Yonsei University, Precision Ceramics, UCLA, ZYP Coatings, Inc., 2Dsemiconductors Inc., New Mexico State University and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Our findings from this research are presented in this report, but the experts agree that hexagonal boron nitride is an exciting material for the future and will likely find applications as a counterpart to graphene.
