The improved reaction efficiency of defective boron atoms with the amino groups is directly related to the increased density of defect sites on the h-BN surfaces. In another study, iminoborane has led to the increase of defect sites density due to cleavage of B─N bonds and expansion of BN rings . These approaches may be applicable also for the chemical functionalization of BNNTs. Defect sites and active edges of BNNTs offer possibilities for exploiting BN nanomaterial chemistry in different solvents.
