A simple method to prepare boron suboxide fibres

In this paper, boron suboxide fibres are synthesized by a solid state reaction method using CaO, B and Fe3O4 as starting materials in Ar atmosphere. The boron suboxide fibres include nanobelts and nanowires and they have unique morphologies. Through adjusting the contents of starting materials, we can control the diameters of boron suboxide fibres. Using the laser Raman spectrum, the photic properties were measured. The possible growth mechanism of the boron suboxide structure is discussed. As the boron suboxide has many excellent physics properties, it is believed that boron suboxide fibres synthesized have promising applications in functional ceramics fillings or in electronics.
