Hexagonal Boron Nitride

Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) is a crystalline form of boron nitride that possesses a hexagonal structure similar to that of graphite. It is often referred to as "white graphite" because of its white color and graphite-like properties, including lubricity and high thermal conductivity, albeit with significantly different electrical properties.

h-BN is an excellent electrical insulator due to its wide band gap. The unique combination of thermal, electrical, and mechanical properties, along with its chemical stability, makes h-BN a suitable material for a wide range of applications.

h-BN Hexagonal Boron Nitride Structure

Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) has a layered structure. In a layer of h-BN, each boron atom is covalently bonded to three nitrogen atoms and vice versa.
