Boron-based Furan Polymers
PODCASTS

Podcast – Boron-based Furan Polymers

Today, we’re going to look at boron-based furan polymers. boron-based furan polymers are a new class of renewable energy materials based on boron. These birdegradable materials can provide portable energy sources, serve as catalysts in chemical reactions, and can potentially be used as electrode materials in lithium-ion batteries.

Boron Reduces Fluoride Toxicity
PODCASTS

Podcast – Boron Reduces Fluoride Toxicity

Today, we’re going to look at fluoride toxicity. Boron can help to reduce fluoride toxicity. Fluoride is a toxic chemical that can cause severe health problems, despite the best efforts of the WHO to provide recommended levels of fluoride intake by source. Fluoride toxicity is seen in both animals and humans. But how can boron help to lower toxicity?

Libido with Boron

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
PODCASTS, Defense

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.
