Boron inside - in Boron Neodymium Magnets
Podcast – Boron Neodymium Magnets

Podcast – Boron Neodymium Magnets

Today, we're going to look at boron neodymium magnets. Neodymium magnets are rare earth magnets composed of neodymium, iron boron, and several transition metals. The neodymium elements are classified as rare earth magnets because they lie in the lanthanides section on the periodic table.

Today, we will review current practices and regulations in an industry-wide drive to meet goals and look at how the latest technological breakthroughs play a pivotal role in shifting toward more sustainable and eco-friendly infrastructure.

Podcast – Boron and Healthcare

In today's podcast, we will look at Boron and healthcare. Boron is an essential mineral found in our food supply naturally, and many of us consume boron for health without knowing we are doing so. Boron is present in eye drops and supplements for bone development, osteoarthritis treatment, muscle building, testosterone level increase, aid cognitive function, and strength improvement. It’s also beneficial for women’s health to relieve menstrual cramps and reduce vaginal yeast infections.

Volvo cars built with Boron
Podcast – Boron and Volvo Cars

Podcast – Boron and Volvo Cars

In today's podcast, we're going to look at the use of boron in the automotive sector and how Volvo cars use boron to strengthen their cars. In recent years, there has been an increase in demand for automotive parts containing boron steel due to the increasing use of hybrid or electric vehicles. This trend is expected to grow further because of growing awareness about environmental issues.

Podcast High Purity Boron

In today's podcast, we're going to look at the global high purity boron market, which will experience strong growth in the coming years. This is mainly due to the increasing demand for boron-based products in electronics, semiconductors, and the automotive sector.

Boron Nutrients in Rice Plants
Podcast – Boron Nutrients in Rice

Podcast – Boron Nutrients in Rice

In today's podcast, we're going to look at boron nutrients in rice plants. Boron nutrition is essential for rice growth and yield. It improves plant water relations and increases the total chlorophyll content in plants. It also enhances the kernel quality and reduces panicle sterility for rice plants.

Podcast – Boron and U.S. Rare Earths

Podcast – Boron and U.S. Rare Earths

Podcast - Today, we're going to take a look at boron and US rare earths and the stockpiling policy. The US is boosting the stockpile of its rare earth materials, such as cobalt and lithium. But why is this? The answer is partly to reduce dependence on China and partly to have a strategic policy towards rare earth sourcing and distribution.

Boron Powers Space Exploration
Podcast – Boron Powers Space Exploration

Podcast – Boron Powers Space Exploration

Podcast - Boron Powers Space Exploration. Boron is an excellent choice for rocket fuel given its ease of manufacture, availability, and low storage costs. It is also a good additive for jet fuel. Scientists at the University of California Riverside are testing ammonia borane, NH3BH3, as an alternative to traditional carbon-based chemical rocket fuels. This could lead to carbon-free space launches.

Boron Demand in Military Conflict
Podcast – Boron Demand in Military Conflict

Podcast – Boron Demand in Military Conflict

Podcast - Boron demand in military conflict. The tragic scenes unfolding on our screens daily of the conflict in Ukraine are a powerful reminder of the need for protective materials to minimise injury and fatalities among the military personnel and civilians. Military hardware requires strong, light, malleable, durable and anti-corrosive materials. Boron is a key material used in bulletproof vests, bulletproof armour, in helicopter skins and on aircraft as well as an anti-corrosive in weaponry.
