    Nanocrystalline boron nitride (BN) with needle-like morphology has been synthesized by reacting amorphous B powder with NaN3. The samples were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), Fourier transformation infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray photoelectron spectra (XPS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
