After the discovery of C fullerenes and later C nanotubes, nanostructures made out of C and B in combination with N have become of increasing interest due to their possible use in mechanical applications, e.g., as hard coatings as well as in nanoelectronics, e.g., for flat panel displays Still, however, no conclusive evidence of the formation of either closed cages or tubules made of carbon nitride CNx have been reported. Here we report on the formation of CNx, (0 < x < 0.33) fullerene-like structures in the form of tubular arrangements (leek-like) from curved CN basal planes with the c-axis in the substrate plane.
