Abstract
Currently, there is no scalable method for the production of BN nano-tubes with a controlled diameter. In this project, PH Matter, LLC will partner with Dr. Sheldon Shore from the Ohio State University to develop a commercially viable and scalable process for the selective production of BN nano-tubes. Dr. Shore is an expert in the area of boron and boron nitride chemistry, with over 60 years of experience in the field. The process to be demonstrated by the team will be based on previously developed catalytic techniques for synthesis of carbon and doped-carbon nano-tubes, but will utilize a novel boron and nitrogen precursor with ideal properties for the proposed approach. Additionally, the team will compare this CVD-based approach to a previously developed approach for direct BN nano-tube synthesis developed by the Shore group.
