NICANITE® CARBON NITRIDE
Carbodeon has been an industrial scale producer of Graphitic carbon nitride since 2008. Our competitors are only now reporting invention of it!
Nicanite® is a high purity, graphitic carbon nitride which offers new and rapidly emerging applications technology.
Carbodeon supply Nicanite® as a powder, or as sintered PVD targets. On request, it can also be supplied as an aqueous slurry.

The partice sizes (d50) of 1.5 microns and 390 nm are typically available through ball milling and pearl milling, respectively. In addition to being dielectric, chemically inert and thermally conductive, carbon nitrides are generally non-toxic and biocompatible. Graphitic carbon nitride is also available as PVD targets, facilitating production of functional carbon nitride thin films in amorphous and crystalline form. So far, especially successful results have been received through pulsed laser deposition. Carbon nitride targets are available upon request to Carbodeon.
