Borophene is an innovative new 2D mono-atomic material that can rival Graphene in terms of strength and flexibility. Also cheaper to produce and is a better conductor. Borophene is categorized as the best alternative that goes beyond the benefits and quality Graphene provides.
Boron – The Secret Behind New Battery Formats
Boron-based Polymers for EV Storage: Boron-based Polymers to Improve Electric Vehicle Energy Storage: Boron-based polymers such as BNNTs are 2D nanomaterials with excellent properties for improving electric vehicle energy storage given their high surface areas, large aspect ratios, and good thermal conductivities. Borates Today examines the potential for use of BNNTs in electric vehicle transmissions and batteries.
Rare Earth elements are valuable because they have magnetic and optical properties which create technologies in components such as audio speakers, hard drives, camera lenses, MRI imaging, and monitors of all sorts. But there is a cost to mining them as post-mining purification processes create hazardous waste. Boron is a potential alternative, providing clean and superconductive, energy-efficient benefits while being cheaper and more environmentally friendly.
Boron Podcast - Boron Nitride Nanotubes and wearable devices. It’s an intriguing title but how come boron is being touted among the research community as a favoured choice for powering wearable devices of the future?
Boron-based Furan polymers are a new class of renewable energy materials based on boron. These materials can provide portable energy sources, serve as catalysts in chemical reactions, and can potentially be used as electrode materials in lithium-ion batteries. They are also highly biodegradable.
