  author={Jiewen Li and Chuanbao Cao and He-sun Zhu},
Carbon nitride nanobelts and nanotubes were synthesized through polycondensation of dicyandiamide (H4C2N4) and melamine (C3N6H6) at 290 °C and 4.5–5 MPa. The as-synthesized samples were investigated by powder x-ray diffraction, field-emission scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, elemental analysis and photoluminescence spectra. The results indicate that a new kind of graphite-like carbon nitride nanobelt and nanotube has been… Expand
