Abstract

Multiwalled B-C-N nanotubes of various morphologies and chemical compositions were synthesized by reacting C-based nanotube templates with boron oxide and nitrogen at 1573 K- 2173 K. The nanotubes were thoroughly analysed using a high-resolution field-emission 300 kV transmission electron microscope (TEM), an energy-filtered field-emission 300 kV electron microscope (Omega filter), an electron energy loss spectrometer and an energy dispersion X-ray detector. Transport and field emission properties of the nanotubes were studied using a low energy electron point source microscope and via in-situ measurements in TEM equipped with a scanning tunnelling microscope (STM) unit.
