Aluminum nitride/boron nitride nanocomposite materials were synthesized by using boric acid, urea, and aluminum chloride hexahydrate as the starting compounds. The starting materials were dissolved in water and mixed homogeneously. Ammonolysis of the aqueous solution resulted in the formation of a precomposite gel, which converted into the AIN/BN composite on further heat treatment. Characterization of both the precomposite and the composite powders included XRD, FTIR, NMR and TEM. Analysis of the composite revealed that the A1N had a hexagonal crystal structure and the BN phase a turbostratic structure.
