Nanocrystalline boron nitride powders were synthesized by combustion process using urea as a fuel. Experiments were carried out by heating boric acid and urea in an N 2 atmosphere at 850 ° C. Boric acid was used as a source of boron while urea, as a source of nitrogen. The reactions were carried out in an autoclave with provisions for purging with nitrogen gas. The samples were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform IR spectroscopy (FT-IR), FT-Raman spectroscopy, UV-VIS spectroscopy, and SEM.
