“White Graphene”: Industrial Applications and Recent Research related to Hexagonal Boron Nitride and Boron Nitride Nanotubes

The technology scouting services arm of Del Stark Technology Solutions has published a new technology briefing on the industrial applications for Hexagonal Boron Nitride (h-BN) and Boron Nitride Nanotubes.

Hexagonal boron nitride has many attractive properties such as a wide band gap, direct band structure, it is dielectric, and it can be used as a tunneling barrier.   h-BN can be used in many applications such as gas barriers, high heat resistance, ultrathin layered insulators, cosmetics and makeup, grinding and cutting, non-wetting applications, crucibles for molten metals, lubrication, coatings and thermal management.

This 159-page report highlights recent academic research papers published in 2015 and early 2016 that could be of interest to companies interested in using hexagonal boron nitride and boron nitride nanotubes for applications including heat dissipation, the construction of novel devices, coatings, antifouling, reinforcement and ceramics.  The report reviews 120 academic research papers and 93 patents plus highlights recent news and research projects of interest funded by the European Flagship project and the National Science Foundation in the USA.

Experts were asked for their views on the commercial viability of hexagonal boron nitride.  Market data and company profiles of 33 companies are also included. 

Discover the latest research results which your company can optimise for future business opportunities.
