Nanotubes and other nanoclusters of both carbon and boron nitride are controllably grown by simple surface self diffusion, both homogenously and heterogeneously, following a mechanical ball-milling preparative stage. Brief comparisons are drawn with the nucleation and growth of nanostructures during ionizing irradiations of varying degree on graphite and molybdenite target surfaces.
