Abstract

Outstanding protection of Cu by high-quality boron nitride nanofilm (BNNF) 1–2 atomic layers thick in salt water is observed, while defective BNNF accelerates the reaction of Cu toward water. The chemical stability, insulating nature, and impermeability of ions through the BN hexagons render BNNF a great choice for atomic-scale protection.
