Boron nitride (BN) with flake-like morphology has been synthesized by reacting powder H3BO3, Mg, and NH4Cl. X-ray diffraction patterns show that the sample has hexagonal phase with lattice parameters a=2.506 and c=6.692 Å. Transmission electron microscopy and field emission scanning electron microscopy indicate that the as-synthesized product is pure flake with a mean size of about 100 nm width and 600 nm length. X-ray photoelectron spectra give an average B/N atomic ratio of 0.98:1. Fourier transformation infrared spectroscopy has a strong B–N absorption at 1376 and 814 cm−1.
