Ordering and commercial opportunities

Boron nitride nanotube commercial services

To meet the demands of boron nitride (BN) nanotubes for research and application, we provide small amounts of BN nanotubes with a charge to cover the production costs. The BN nanotubes are produced using the ball milling and annealing method. This method can produce BN nanotubes with different tubular structures and sizes.

Product Structure Diameter Price (AU$) Minimum Quantity
BN nanotubes Bamboo-like 40-80nm $760 / g 0.5g
BN nanotubes Cylindrical <15nm $950 / g 0.5g
BN nanotube films grown on substrate Bamboo / Cylindrical 40-80nm / <15nm $328 / 2cm x 2cm 1 piece

We are continually working to improve quality and endow the BNNTs with new properties. Therefore, we are open to discussion of customer's particular needs and possible research collaborations.
