Boron Nitride Chemical Formula

Boron Nitride is a colorless crystal compound with equal number of boron and nitrogen atoms. It is often called as "White Graphite" because it is a soft, lubricious material with low electric conductivity and high thermal conductivity. Its a good electrical insulator, thus boron nitride ceramics is used as a high temperature equipment and it is also widely used in nanotechnology.
