Boron Carbon Nitride, the super hard material


BCN is supposed to be a super hard material.

Some time ago I followed the instructions in the video below and made carbon nitride via heating urea crystals in my furnace at 550C for 3hr.
It is a lemon yellow powder which is virtually weightless.

I was thinking if I repeat the experiment but mix some Boron Carbide powder with the urea crystals before heating what's my chances of forming BCN ?

The video you linked to was posted on the first of april and sounds pretty fishy.

Also it is the first of may today so im not sure what you are going for. Is this a joke?

Ur Nope, I have made the carbon nitride powder just as he said by heating urea crystals in a furnace.
