What is nitrogen used for?

Nitrogen is important to the chemical industry. It is used to make fertilisers, nitric acid, nylon, dyes and explosives. To make these products, nitrogen must first be reacted with hydrogen to produce ammonia.

What are the two forms of black phosphorus?

Black Phosphorus Black phosphorus exists in two forms; alpha-black phosphorus and beta-black phosphorus. These two forms have different formation paths. Red phosphorus when heated in a sealed tube at 803 K temperature it forms alpha-black phosphorus.

What can black phosphorus be used for?

Black phosphorus powder is generally used to prepare black phosphorus quantum-dots (BPQDs) and nano-platelets by liquid-exfoliation (assisted by sonication). As a result of its high purity, the powdered form can also be used in chemical vapour deposition to create high-quality, atomically thin films.
