Abstract

Nanostructured h-BN was prepared by mechanical milling under hydrogen atmosphere. The hydrogen concentration reaches up to 2.6 mass% after milling for 80 h, and this value corresponds to ca. 35% of that of nanostructured graphite as was previously reported. In addition to the hydrogen desorption starting at about 570 K, nitrogen desorption was also detected at about 700 K. There was no recrystallization phenomenon at least below 1173 K. The dissimilarities on the (de-)hydriding properties between nanostructured h-BN and graphite might be due to the different local electronic structure near the specific defects.
