Boron Nitride Nanotubes – BNNT

Boron Nitride Nanotubes – BNNT

Product Summary

BNNT presents similar thermal conducting and mechanical properties compared to CNT, while its thermal/chemical stabilities, biocompatibility, electric insulating, and thermal neutron absorbing properties are much higher than those of CNT. Due to these superior properties, BNNT is currently under exploration in many areas of IT, space/nuclear, bio-medical, and energy.
