Abstract: A method to synthesize boron nitride coating on the surface of carbon nanotubes (nanofibers) without damaging the tube walls has been developed. A reaction between boric acid and ammonia was performed at moderate temperatures on the surface of carbon nanotubes to form boron nitride (BN) coatings. The surface structure of the carbon nanotubes significantly influences the morphology of the boron nitride coating. If the surface of the tubes is free of defects, highly crystallized insulating BN nanotubes can encapsulate carbon nanotubes. On the surface of carbon nanotubes with disordered wall structure, a polycrystalline BN sheath was produced.
