Nanodisperse crystalline carbon nitride (C3N4) can be obtained by the method of dynamic synthesis in a hypersonic jet of electric-discharge carbon plasma in nitrogen atmosphere. The data of high-resolution transmission electron microscopy show that the crystalline structure of the synthesized material is close to a theoretical structural model of the α phase of C3N4. Flattened C3N4 nanocrystals possess a unique structure and appear as quasi-two-dimensional multilayer particles without any known analogs.
