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 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.

Boronic Acid
SCIENCE, Chemistry

Boronic Acid

Boronic Acid, or acids, works as Lewis acids, and they form reversible covalent complexes with sugars, amino acids, hydroxamic acids, and others. It is considered a unique feature of the acid group. They are extensively used in organic chemistry in the form of chemical building blocks.

Boric acid
SCIENCE, Chemistry

Boric Acid 101

Boric acid, also known as boracic acid or orthoboric acid, is a naturally occurring compound containing the elements boron, oxygen, and hydrogen (H3BO3). Boric acid crystals are white, odorless, and nearly tasteless. It looks like fine table salt in the granular form or like baby powder in the powdered form.

Boron Oxide, Boron Research
Chemistry, SCIENCE

Boron Oxide

Boron combines with oxygen to form Boron oxide. Boron oxide appears as colourless, semi-transparent glassy lumps or hard white, odourless crystals. Moderately soluble in water, it is the base material for the synthesis of other boron compounds, as a fluxing agent in enamels and glasses, and as a bonding agent in the hot isostatic pressing of boron nitride ceramics. Boron being a metalloid, forms amphoteric oxides; Diboron trioxide, (B2O3 ) being the most common oxide of Boron. 

What is Boron
SCIENCE, Chemistry

Boron

What is Boron? Boron is a chemical element with symbol B and atomic number. The name derives from the Arabic buraq for "white." It was discovered or 'isolated' in 1808 by the French chemists Louis-Joseph Gay-Lussac and Louis-Jacques Thenard, who isolated boron by combining boric acid (H3BO3) with potassium.

What are Borates

Borates are minerals that naturally occur and contain boron, the fifth of the Periodic Table’s elements. Water, soil, and rock all contain trace amounts. They are vital for the growth of plants. Borates play a vital role in the manufacture of everything from ceramics to insecticides. You can find them naturally in the environment and they even occur naturally in our bodies.

Boron and Lithium the dynamic duo

Boron is often a great substitute for lithium. It has many industrial applications as compared to Lithium. It is an element that has many similarities to lithium, but also some key differences. Boron can be found in the earth’s crust and it exists naturally as boric acid. The two elements have similar properties such as melting points, boiling points, and lengths of atomic chains. They both react with water to form hydrogen gas, which makes them useful for hydrogen fuel cells.

Introduction to Boron and Borates

The role of Boron has become much more strategic. Boron is now at the heart of tackling global warming, decarbonization, food security among other uses and applications. Borates Today has an initiative to bring awareness of Boron to the forefront of our thinking: We have only one planet. Resources are finite, and it is our joint responsibility to take action to make the world a better place for future generations.
