Porous Boron Nitride

The formation and applications of porous Boron Nitride have been the subject of popular research lately. Its high porosity and thermal stability will help pave the way for improving large-scale industrial gas and liquid separations, such as those used in carbon capture or water treatment processes by reducing the amount of energy required.

Boron drives the Low Carbon Economy

The push for increased decarbonization is being felt worldwide as investors pressure companies to take this issue seriously. The fossil fuel industry is feeling the heat, too, with some of its well-known members stepping up their efforts to reduce emissions and make a difference. Governments are also taking notice of these changes, and there has been an increase in legislation designed to incentivize investments in clean energy technology. How can Boron help?

Boron in Neutron Capture for Nuclear Power Safety

Nuclear power is a controversial topic. Many want to abolish it entirely. And just as many believe that the benefits of nuclear power outweigh its risks. But in any case, there can be no denying that the safety of nuclear reactors is paramount for both sides of the...

Boron – The Building Block of Urbanization

Boron is a metal useful to modern societies for over 100 years. It is most commonly available as borax in household cleaning products. Or, as the boric acid in eye drops and mouthwashes. However, it has many other uses in urbanization. It is present in construction...

How Boron is used to Help in Oil Recovery

Boron - Oil and Gas

Modern civilization has been heavily influenced by the discovery of petrochemicals. The entire human race is driven by this natural resource, dubbed liquid gold.  Petrochemical derivatives are overwhelmingly present in our lives --- as plastic bags/wrappers that envelop everything from food items to clothing, as cosmetics, as the spandex garments that drape us so flawlessly, as fertilizers or even as molded furniture, to its crudest form - as gasoline in our car tanks, jet fuels and kerosene for cooking!  With oil defining our lives, industrialization, and global economies, there is a...

Boron - Nuclear Power

Nuclear power is a controversial topic. Many want to abolish it entirely. And just as many believe that the benefits of nuclear power outweigh its risks. But in any case, there can be no denying that the safety of nuclear reactors is paramount for both sides of the argument. That is why we're going to take a closer look at boron today. It is one of the most important materials in neutron capture for nuclear power safety. Boron: neutron capture for nuclear power safety Firstly, It is a non-metal that has no electrons. This makes it an excellent neutron capture agent for nuclear power...

Boron for plants - Gardening

An micronutrient that plays an important role in plants' life and growth. It's deficiencies can lead to serious problems with the plants such as stunted growth and rougher leaves. It can also result in interveinal chlorosis of leaves, purpling of leaf margins and petioles, and necrosis of young fruit or flowers. If you're looking for ways to improve your garden's health this year then make sure to add boron. Why Boron is an essential micronutrient in plants A deficiency can cause stunting, rough leaves, and interveinal chlorosis of the leaf blades along with purpling on the margins or...

Boron - Urbanization

Boron is a metal useful to modern societies for over 100 years. It is most commonly available as borax in household cleaning products. Or, as the boric acid in eye drops and mouthwashes. However, it has many other uses in urbanization. It is present in construction materials such as concrete and asphalt. Because of its high strength-to-weight ratio. Additionally, it is useful in making fiberglass composites which are often present on boats and aircraft. They are helpful mainly due to their lightweight but strong properties. It is also an excellent substitute for lead-based paints due to...
