Abstract Graphitic-C3N4 (g-C3N4) and pseudocubic-C3N4 (p-C3N4) have been synthesized by thermally annealing high-energy ball milled amorphous nanostructured graphite powders under NH3 atmosphere. The experimental results by x-ray, transmission electron microscopy, selected electron area diffraction and parallel electron energy loss spectroscopy indicated that g-C3N4 grew from the milled graphite powders in the presence of NH3 gas at a temperature of 1050°C. After treatment at a temperature of 1350°C, the pseudocubic-C3N4 phase forms. It was believed that the high-energy ball milling generates nanosized amorphous graphite structures, under subsequent isothermal annealing in a flow of NH3 gas, the carbon nitride compound can easily form through reaction of nanostructured carbon with nitrogen of NH3.
