Summary

Analysis of the pyrolysis and resultant products of possible BN precursors was carried out. Some precursors with reasonable yields were found. While some gave substantial porosity, reasonably dense, pyrolysis products appear feasible. Analysis by several methods, while not fully consistent with one another, overall show that the products contain B with some N and C. Almost all products were truly amorphous. Possible uses of such materials are discussed.
