Meshy boron nitride (BN) with a large surface area of 220 m2 g–1 was synthesized by the reaction of NaBH4 and CS(NH2)2, which exhibits strong cathode-luminescence emission, good thermal stability, and oxidation resistance up to 800 °C. The vulcanization behavior of CS(NH2)2 for the cross-linking among borazine molecules is critical for the formation of meshy BN.
