Abstract
6 nm crystalline A1N has been synthesized through a simple reaction between commercial Al and NH4Cl in an autoclave at 580 degrees C which is much low er than those of traditional methods. X-ray diffraction result indicates th e formation of hexagonal A1N nanocrystallites. Transmission electron micros copy image shows that the average size of the crystallites is 6 nm. The pos sible synthetic mechanism of A1N is proposed.
