Technical Data | MSDS | Literature and Reviews


Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) (CAS number 10043-11-5) has a honeycomb structure based on sp2 covalent bonds similar to graphene. Due to the similarity it is also known as “white graphene”. Unlike graphene, h-BN exhibits a wide band gap. This band gap uniquely transitions from indirect in its bulk form to direct when reduced to a monolayer.

h-BN is considered an insulator, and is used as a sub-layer material for any other 2D material in electronic devices. However, it has exotic opto-electronic properties (e.g. wide bandgap and low dielectric constant) along with mechanical robustness, high thermal conductivity and chemical inertness. h-BN is widely used as a dielectric substrate in electronic and optical devices for graphene and other 2D-layered semiconductors (e.g. transition metal dichalcogenides TMDs).

2D h-BN has no absorption in the visible range, but has absorption in the ultraviolet region with good photoluminescence.

Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) few-layer film, often referred to as h-BN nanosheets (h-BNNs), has an ultra-flat surface without dangling bonds. Due to its oxidation resistance even at high temperatures (up to 1000 oC) and chemical resistance to both acids and bases, it is believed to be a better substrate than silicon.
