Not so tough now: h-BN more amenable to bonding after reduction reaction

By Lisa McDonald / August 16, 2019

Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) has many excellent properties but does not bond well with other elements. Chemists at Rice University found a particular reduction reaction allows h-BN to bond readily with carbon chains.
