Bulk synthesis and characterization of graphite-like B–C–N and B–C–N heterodiamond compounds

Abstract

High quality graphite-like B–C–N compounds used for the shock-synthesis of B–C–N heterodiamonds were bulk-synthesized in good yield by pyrolysis of the polymers between BCl3 and commercially available nitriles at 1773 K. It was elucidated that the series of obtained heterodiamond compounds are described by the formula CBxNx(BN)y composed of CBxNx and (BN)y segments and have an unusual structure in which diamond-like carbon atoms are randomly substituted for B/N atoms and (BN)y segments, based on IR, XPS and X-ray powder diffraction.
