Boron in California
MINING

Boron in California

California is the only US state that produces it domestically. The state had 13 active Boron mines in 2008, with eight underground and eight surfaces. Four of these mines were producing Boron; two were processing ore, and seven were stockpiling materials. California is home to more than half the U.S. Boron production.

Boron Climate Risk
DECARBONIZATION

Boron and Climate Risk

Climate change is real. The impact of the physical climate risk is already affecting the living population. Boron is a low-cost and sustainable solution to help control climate change effects. Climate researchers consider boron an essential ingredient in reducing global warming. It is helpful as a catalyst for creating one or more hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) with lower greenhouse gas emissions. It is lesser than current HFCs commonly present in air conditioners, refrigerators, and other cooling devices.

Boron in Coffee
FOOD SECURITY, Human Health

Boron in Coffee

Coffee is one of the most susceptible crops to boron shortage. Boron in coffee is needed for coffee cultivation to improve yield and support healthy growth via cell divisions and cell wall formation in association with calcium, water uptake, roots growth, growth of internodes, setting, calcium uptake, lower aluminum toxicity, and drought resistance.

Boron Minerals
MINING, Chemistry

Boron Minerals

Boron minerals are found in the Earth's crust; its various forms come from different geological structures, such as pegmatite and metamorphic rocks. The most common boron minerals include Tincal, Tincalconite, Colemanite, Kernite, Ulexite, Pandermite, Boracite, Hydroboracite, Inderite, Ascharite, Datolite, Sassolite, Meyerhofferite, Inyoite, and Probertite.

Boron Vitamins

Boron vitamins play many different roles in your body. This includes your metabolism and other functions that help maintain homeostasis. You may be surprised to learn that sex hormones and gingivitis are closely connected. These hormones may alter the balance of your oral microbiome, which can then affect your immune system.

Boron Trifluoride
SCIENCE, Chemistry

Boron Trifluoride

Boron trifluoride is capable of forming complexes with dimethyl, such as boron-trifluoride–dimethyl ether. These complexes are typically formed to allow for the easy handling of boron trifluoride. Boron trifluoride might also form complexes when combined with water, phenol or phosphoric acids, piperidines, dimethylanilines, methanol, and diethyl ether.

Boron for Yeast infection
Human Health, BENEFITS

Boron for Yeast Infection

Yeast infection, which causes vaginal irritation, itching, etc., can be treated with the help of boron. Boron here is used in the form of a boric acid suppository. It has proven to restore vaginal pH and relieve itching and other symptoms. Moreover, boron plays an essential role in women’s well-being by regulating estrogen and vitamin D. Consequently, it helps prevent diseases like osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, menopausal symptoms, etc.

APPLICATIONS

SCIENCE, APPLICATIONS

Boron Fiber

Boron fiber, commonly known as boron filament, is an amorphous element of B5 by-product, representing a primary industrial usage of elemental (free) boron. Boron fibers are manufactured to improve rigidity in synthesized materials where glass fiber was previously primarily used to reinforce amalgamation in days gone by. Boron fibers compete with high-modulus carbon fibers which have higher stiffness and lower cost.

Boron Renewable Energy

Boron is an essential element of renewable energy. The use of other materials in the production process is reduced. Carbon emissions are decreased by using borates for insulation or fire-retardant purposes. Boron has many properties which make it a good candidate for this purpose. It plays a prominent role as we work to reduce our dependency on traditional methods like fossil fuels.

Ensuring Micronutrient Boron Supply

Famine is a natural disaster that occurs in underdeveloped countries, famine areas, and war-torn regions. In these regions, micronutrients such as boron are scarce or unavailable to the local population. The lack of micronutrients leads to malnutrition which can cause poverty and other issues such as disease and death. Here is a discussion on the importance of micronutrients for famine relief efforts. Check out their benefits for mental health, physical health, and economic development.
