Effect of mechanical activation (MA) of hexagonal boron nitride ( h BN) powder with different intensities in attritor and in a planetary ball mill (PBM) on the structure and phase composition of materials based on this compound was studied. Mechanical activation of h BN powder was carried out in order to decrease the parameters of synthesis of cubic boron nitride ( c BN) due to the formation of nanostructure in h BN. The stoichiometry of h BN is observed to decrease during MA due to partial decomposition. Mechanical treatment of h BN powders in PBM proceeds more intensively and leads to the formation of particles with crystallite size 5-10 times smaller than the size of crystallites formed during treatment in attritor. The specific surface increases by a factor of 3-6. After agglomeration of powders after MA at a pressure above 7 GPa, the phase composition of the resulting material is independent of the intensity of MA and is characterized by the presence of the cubic phase of BN alone.
