“gt-C3N4—The First Stable Binary Carbon(IV) Nitride” – by Prof. Dr. Edwin Kroke

Twenty-five years ago a diamondlike C3N4 phase was postulated. After many unsuccessful attempts the synthesis of an s-triazine-based modification was accomplished, which is reported to show interesting semiconducting and catalytic properties similar to that of graphene and related graphitic C/N/H phases.” – Prof. Dr. Edwin Kroke
