Electrophoretic technology is used to purify BC3.3N in an amorphous carbon and hexagonal boron nitride sample. The results are acquired using Raman spectroscopy and field emission scanning electron microcopy with energy dispersive spectroscopy, which show that pure BC3.3N is obtained from graphite and hexagonal boron nitride. The structural characteristics of this compound are studied by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. A simple method for purifying B-C-N compounds is presented.
