Abstract

A combustion synthesis (SHS) process developed in our previous study for the synthesis of Si 3 N 4 has been tested for the synthesis of boron nitride (BN) powder. Boron and NaN 3 powders were used as the reactants. In addition to ammonium halides, KHF 2 , FeCl 3 , NaNH 2 , or a mixture of 50 mol % FeCl 3 and 50 mol % NaNH 2 was added to the reactants to examine their catalytic effect. These powders were mixed and pressed into a cylindrical compact. The compact was wrapped up with an igniting agent (i.e., Mg + Fe 3 O 4 ) and the synthesis reaction was triggered by the combustion of the igniting agent. It was found that only those reagents containing both halogen and hydrogen can exert effectively the catalytic effect. The BN powder as-synthesized is mostly in the form of agglomerated fine particles (0.1-1 μm in diameter) and is hexagonal in crystalline structure. Effects of various experimental parameters on the product yield were investigated. A possible reaction mechanism was proposed, which explains the effects of the experimental parameters on the synthesis reaction.
