Title: Electrochemically induced crystallization of amorphous materials in molten MgCl 2 : boron nitride and hard carbon

Abstract

A novel and versatile strategy toward the amorphous-to-crystalline transformation of boron nitride was developed through an electrochemical pathway using molten MgCl 2 at low temperature (750 °C) and can be extended for transformation of amorphous carbon to graphite.
