  • A common and quite productive method to extract boron is the mineral metaboric acid. It has the simplest extraction process that consists of dissolving it in water, then reacting with sulfuric acid or hydrochloric acid to create ionized molecules that bind as base (OH-) ions. Once this molecule is reacted with a metal such as calcium - which can be found in different ores like limestone and dolomite - they react chemically and form new compounds made of metal and boron. https://borates.today/boron-risks-rewards/

  • George851 - If quarrying for borax, make sure it's properly dried. This prevents water supply contamination and subsequent downstream problems like sedimentation issues in waterways. 3) Wear protective gear when handling dry borax dust or powder as inhaling it can lead to breathing difficulties (e.g., asthma). When wet, however, it presents little-to-no risk of mild irritation; meaning that many miners worked without wearing protective equipment because they thought it was too uncomfortable!
  • Campbell_Carol - The industrial extraction process for this element starts with the refining of bornite ore into usable combined light rare earth (CLRE) products, which are in turn processed to produce purified tri-isopropoxyborane.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - The industrial production of boron is problematic because it contains less than one percent boron by weight. This makes industrial methods inefficient.

  • Coral reefs are important to the ecology of the oceans. Coral reefs help maintain diversity in the marine ecosystem by serving as an essential habitat, which sustains life by providing food, shelter and nursery areas for sea creatures. We all depend on them because coral helps protect coastlines from storm surges, prevents silt buildup in lagoons; they provide ecotourism opportunities to future communities; and serve as a natural treasure trove that will eventually disappear when too much organic matter gets sucked into the ocean's depths or water temperatures rise above tolerable limits for many species. https://borates.today/boron-health-coral-reefs/

  • Campbell_Carol - Boron is important for many bodily functions, including egg fertilization. Coral polyps are hermaphroditic, containing both female and male sex organs. During spawning season the corals release zooxanthellae by showing off their sexual organs to other corals of the same species. The zooxanthellae release more nutrients into the water near the coral to attract any missing partner they need for complete fertilization. When coral reefs contain enough boron, they produce eggs that successfully hatch and grow into healthy adult colonies without having too highly rely on Zooxanthellae as a food source all summer long.
  • George851 - One study found that adding large amounts of an organic borate compound to non-saline water has a resiliency enhancing effect on coastal zooplankton biomass, by advising them to seek refuge within crevices rather than being exposed during low tide periods.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Scientist studying human sicknesg have been looking at the role of boron in healthy bones for a number of years. These studies led to increased interest from scientists studying other aspects of health including its role in maintaining the health and carrying capacity of coral reefs.

  • Boron is a crucial component of the human body. It regulates skeletal growth and calcium metabolism. It also maintains healthy bones by maintaining the levels of certain minerals in the blood, mainly calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.

    Acknowledging that you can spare a high-quality boron mineral supplement, which is typically consumed in a dosage of 0.25 mg per day; it's not recommended to consume regular food sources such as legumes because these are very low in boron content (and they're rather hard for the body to digest). https://borates.today/boron-supplements-immune-system/

  • George851 - Since 2003, scientists at Argonne National Laboratory in the United States have been developing boron cells for use as energy storage devices capable of storing clean electricity produced by solar and wind power plants. The material is amazing - it's small, light, has an extremely long cycle life (4 million cycles or more!) and it can even be recharged by soaking then drying out again!
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron does not protect the heart muscles--in fact, research has shown that it might make things worse by making arteries stiffer. Additionally, this isn't just some "one lab" study disagreeing with another--even though this was an NIH-funded study from prestigious Rosenburg Medical School at UCLA).
  • Campbell_Carol - Boron is an essential element for humans and many other animal species. It's also a very common mineral in the earth's crust, environmentally non-toxic and odorless.

  • Boron can lead to economic growth by improving crop yields. Boron is used by all plants as a crucial, although poorly understood, element for healthy plant growth. Recent research has shown that boron deficiency can have serious consequences for human health and the environment at large. For example, wheat yields are greatly reduced in boron-deficient soil. https://borates.today/economics-boron-production/

  • George851 - Industrialization in China and India is causing a profound increase in demand for boron, the element that is essential for making steel. As world production of steel has been on the decline, prices of this commodity have skyrocketed. While some companies have been able to deal with this rise by importing more from China, which has a large stockpile of boron available due to its new status as a major producer, other companies are facing a shortage and may be forced to shut down production until price levels decrease.
  • Campbell_Carol - Wheat production will be further hindered by climate change if it goes untreated with more intensive fertilization methods or risky genetic engineering techniques—particularly when considering the anticipated increase in drought frequency due to climatic shifts towards drier climates predicted later this century.
  • jessicaallen33 - The globalized economy continues to fluctuate dramatically between boom and bust periods, but eventually all industries will need boron just as they do today--without it there would be no economic growth!

  • The use of borax (sodium borate) carries back to the time of the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks. Boron is a very commonly used element in industries such as steel making and enameling.

    Boron was initially discovered by astronomers who noticed that, like radioactive substances, it has a strong tendency to emit alpha particles (helium nucleus). This property did not make much sense for an element on earth, because all earthly elements were known to be solid and non- emitting chemical substances at room temperature excluding the newly found radioactivity.

  • George851 - Since the early 1900s, boron mining and production in the United States has been dominated by a few large producers. The U.S.'s largest borax mine is located outside Fort Garland, CO, where NASA discovered NASA has been sending astronauts since 1966 on a mission to study boron levels in plants without endangering local habitats. In Japan, mica mines are tapped for the rich veins of white crystals. Mining becomes more challenging as you move farther north or south from these two countries because the natural occurrence of the element decreases over time while new deposits require a lot of work to find and extract.
  • Campbell_Carol - The original method employed by Dan Simons, employed what was known as "the dump"--a pile of ore with an air blast underneath which heated it slightly and aided volatilization of some mineral components.
  • jessicaallen33 - Boron-III is produced by a process called the Cohen Process, named after Daniel Sackler Cohen. This is a high-temperature gas-reducing smelting process for boron ores containing relatively high concentrations of volatile impurities which in some cases is conducted with a liquid in order to lower the melting point and aid the removal of these impurities from the charge.

  • Boron's role in protecting the environment is manifold. It has several indispensable functions, both as an environmental agent and as another important component of the environment. It provides earth with essential protection against floods, sea water seeping through coastal landmasses, and tsunamis. It carries heat by conduction much more efficiently than rock or water would alone; this efficiency accounts for up to 10% of earth's total heat flow outwards (Rossi). The oceans are relieved of boric acid because it precipitates into sea water, converting it to less corrosive hydrochloride salt that causes less algae blooms to develop. https://borates.today/boron-helps-your-garden/

  • George851 - Boron is an essential nutrient in the human diet required by every cell in our body making it a natural biological regulator of many biochemical pathways. It has been shown to have protective effects against human exposure to many pollutants including atomic radiation and heavy metals such as mercury.
  • jessicaallen33 - The amount consumed and exposure route determines the severity of health effects experienced; ingestion of small amounts over time will cause chronic exposure and low risk of acute toxicity while acute exposure will result in significant toxicity– to fatal levels in some cases.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron has many uses in everyday life. From manufacturing ceramics, to strengthening steel, it is a valuable component for humans and the environment. Boron toxicity can be reached at less-than-toxic concentrations by drinking water contaminated with boric acid or by absorption through the skin of compounds containing boron Trihalides (boranes).

  • Borosilicate glass is a type of glass that has been developed to withstand chemical attack from alkaline solutions, especially hydrofluoric acid. Corning's Pyrex brand of borosilicate glass bakeware is the most widely know.

    The use of borosilicate glasses eliminates problems caused by repeated exposure to extreme pH environments, because this material does not show surface etching from continued contact with alkaline solutions even at temperatures as high as 1000 degrees Celsius.This high temperature resistance leads to a much longer lifetime under dishwashing conditions and allows for easier mold cleaning in extreme pH dishwashing powders which contain chlorine. https://borates.today/borosilicate-glass-industrial-applications/

  • jessicaallen33 - Air and water vapor can leave the surface of borosilicate glass without disturbing its normal state. Borosilicate glass is more resistant to thermal shock than regular (soda lime) glass, meaning it can be used for hotter liquids like hot cocoa without breaking as quickly. It's also less likely to shatter when dropped on a hard surface.
  • Campbell_Carol - Borosilicate glass is less reactive, tougher and more scratch-resistant than regular glass. It also has a lower expansion coefficient than regular glass that allows it to stand up better over time in hot drinks, since the higher thermal expansion of borosilicate holds it together when heated whereas traditional glass will often become weakened under these conditions.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Borosilicate glass is much less prone to thermal shock because it has a higher heat resistance and better chemical stability. This change in heat stress texture properties, however, considerably reduces the reliability of pitting-type fracture modes and consequently improves the lifetime of the borosilicate glasses. As way of illustration, while regular soda lime glass (typical window construction material) may reach a temperature where the oxide nears the silicon tetrahedra and causes cracking by fatigue after 8–12 hours at 650 °C (~1400 °F), this kind of thermal activity is well below threshold in borosilicate for about 250 hours at 850 °C (~1600 °F).

  • Boron and Borax production and mining has the potential to bring major economic growth due to the recent shortages in supply. Countries such as Niger, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan have been producing large amounts of borax deposits as a mineral supplement for international markets. Bauxite ore deposits can be found throughout Europe as well as in Cuba, Morocco, El Salvador and Turkey; all countries who may be taking advantage of their vast reserves of richness for their nations' wealth. https://borates.today/economics-boron-production/

  • George851 - In 2013, an element called gallium was also discovered to become borate when exposed at normal temperature and pressure which means further sources need to be identified.
  • jessicaallen33 - Most importantly, boron has been found to be a critical element for growing plants, meaning that if economic growth is based on agriculture then this element must be included, and the agricultural production will suffer without it.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron is also an important component in the manufacturing process of syntactic foam (used extensively by NASA), therefore discoveries like these could lead to great invention capabilities that will inevitably advance our technological history and lead us towards greater production capacities.

  • In most countries ranging from the US to India, scientists are studying the relationship between boron use in coffee plants and changes in crop yields.
    Thorium studies show that the chemicals responsible for coffee's acidity also inhibit plant growth. Scientists hypothesize that it would be possible to make an organic fertilizer/coffee fertilizer; top-quality Arabica coffee production requires only low levels of boron (and it is found naturally, at lower levels), but soils contain much higher concentrations of this element than natural coffee plants need. Many doubt whether future farming methods will allow for this type of fertilization; developments are promising but still premature; pesticides used on crops can cause decay. https://borates.today/boron-in-coffee/

  • Campbell_Carol - Boron can act as an additional nutrient to the soil in which the coffee plant grows. This will yield more fruit on the plant or bush. However, boron also exhibits significant antioxidant effects that keep cells healthy and clean by removing free radicals that damage cells' genetic material, proteins...etc.
  • George851 - Boron is sometimes found in coffee plants because most borates can dissolve in water, and some of it will run into the soil when the land where the coffee is grown accumulates enough rainwater.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - If they live in a boron-rich soil environment, boron will accumulate within the coffee plant and 100% of those plants will have detectable amounts of boron.

  • Borax is not a vitamin, but many people believe it to be so because the name boron is often confused with the word "vitamins." Regardless, borax contains an array of health benefits that are particularly pronounced if consumed on an empty stomach. Best of all, Borax is safe for humans and animals alike- including fish! As emphasized by many people in this thread, its first benefit will be to make your home safer from vermin. It can also help relieve skin problems like acne or psoriasis. https://borates.today/boron-vitamins/

  • Boron is essential for healthy fertility and elevated testosterone levels. Research also shows that boron supports a healthy sex life through its involvement in the regulation of cell metabolism and blood functioning. Results from human studies show increased sex drive, increased sexual frequency, and improved sperm quality with boron supplementation. Laboratory investigations suggest that low serum levels of boron may be associated with impaired production or activity of gonadotropin hormones, which include LH and FSH molecules. This results in lowered production of testosterone and lessened fertility rates among men and women alike. https://borates.today/boron-healthy-sex/-

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron has been getting a lot of hype in recent months for its newly found and verified properties that can aid male sexual health. And while this is definitely true, the amount needed to provide any results at all is pretty high - around 20-30 mg per day. That's just about 10 times more than the recommended dosage!
  • Campbell_Carol - If we're talking about boron-based fertilizers, they may be used in conventional and organic farming and in potted plants.
  • jessicaallen33 - Boron and healthy sex certainly go hand in hand.

  • A boronic acid is a chemical compound comprising a hydroxyl group, -OH, and a B(OH)2 group. The simplest example of this type of chemical is metaboric acid. Boronic acids are important for pharmaceuticals because they can be used as building blocks to design molecules for chemotherapy drugs, antibiotics and pesticides that selectively attack microbes or cancer cells.

    The reactions between carboxylic acids through the corresponding nucleophiles to form esters and amines (respectively) can also turn carboxylic acids into boron derivatives; one such derivative is the above-mentioned meta-borinic acid CH3COOH=CHBOH. https://borates.today/boronic-acid/

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - The most popular way to make a boronic acid is with an olefin. Add a Pd catalyst, amine, and base to the olefinic substrate in DCE. Reduce the water of amination with sodium borohydride (NaBH4) or lithium aluminum hydride (LiAlH4).
  • jessicaallen33 - Boronic acids are usually made by combining boron trioxide with an alcohol or phenol. Some common ways to make boronic acids are shown below. * Combine 2 molecules of boron trioxide with 1 molecule of formic acid in hot water. * Combine 2 molecules of boron trioxide with 1 molecule of glycerol in hot water. * Combine 3 molecules of baking soda with 2 molecules of diphenylborate and sodium iodide under microwave irradiation at 60°C for 30 minutes, then filter the solution and recrystallize the product using ethanol ether solutions heated at 65°F-96°F.
  • George851 - Chapter 2 of Organic Chemistry by John Mcmurry states concretely that humans do not contribute boronia to the environment. That is, we cannot create it ourselves. There is no evidence that our carbon can combine with hydrogen and oxygen under normal conditions to create boron compounds such as boric acid which would then become a severe pollutant leading to environmental damage or causing irreparable harm on humans or other living organisms.

  • The production of boron is on the rise thanks to advances in mining technology, and this poses some new problems for the environment. Boron mining companies are posing a major threat by inflicting toxic damage on Native American territories of Arizona and New Mexico, who fear that such an operation could be resourced there again. The boron mines of California pose serious risks to natural resources including fish populations and wildlife habitat, further impeding fishing communities and hurting future tourism industries. https://borates.today/abr-production-triples/

  • Campbell_Carol - Boron has been found to be directly related to the health of bones and calcium absorption, as it is a key part of a molecule responsible for conferring calcium an ionic charge so it can be absorbed by bones.
  • George851 - Climate change is a reality and we must look for new methods to produce boron, as it's necessary for many industries. It's imperative that we find ways to lessen the impact of climate change now, before it becomes too dire. Small amounts of atmospheric boron are created as a byproduct from burning coal-fired power plants and can be salvaged from gases emitted into the atmosphere or directly captured at source.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron deficiency results in frail, brittle hair and nails; poor bone density even though the person seem to have adequate calcium intake; low levels of important bile enzymes needed for digestion that may lead to digestive problems such as gastroenteritis or irritation from oxalates present in spinach or rhubarb which block uptake of minerals including iron.

  • Boron is commonly used to regulate pH balance in swimming pools, although it does not contain any germicidal properties. It assists the filtration process by attaching to contaminant particles, which can then be more easily removed from the water if necessary.

    There are other processes that more reliably remove contaminants like chlorine dioxide and ozone, but boron is usually more cost-effective than these methods (and less thematically distracting for swimmers!). Its primary purpose is simply as a supplement to filtering; an extra step designed to help improve on current filters’ success rates without changing their core functions.

  • There are shelves of interesting stories about improbably substances one can use to create miracles. Unfortunately, very few are true. Boron is just a particulate material that has no usefulness in insulation properties- nor does any other particulate material. The reason why boron is hard to insulate with doesn't have anything to do with its nature as an element- it's because boron pieces are too small and don't have enough surface area for good conduction or convection. https://borates.today/boron-insulator/

  • Campbell_Carol - Boron has what's called a wide band-gap and doesn't generally react with other materials at high temperatures, which results in superior insulation properties. This chemical property makes it perfect for use in integrating into modern electronic devices such as power lines, turbines, generators--practically anything that needs electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) protection because it cannot be thrown off by interaction with other material.
  • George851 - Boron is the best known and most thoroughly studied family of materials used to improve electrical insulation properties. Further, boron nitride nanotubes have been shown to possess superior catalytic and dielectric properties in addition to their excellent electron field emission characteristics.
  • jessicaallen33 - Boron is a common element in the air. In fact, there are more boron atoms floating around in the Earth's atmosphere than ozone molecules. We breath it all day and it's now been shown to have superior insulating properties making it great for keeping your home warm during those frightfully cold winter months!

  • The properties of boronized (boric acid-treated) composite and glass fibers combined with the low thermal neutron fluence rates that were available in space applications led to its acceptance as a flame-proof material for use structurally exposed applications such as high bay support members, flooring systems, ceilings, wing skins and airframes. Structurally exposed means the material is not covered up by other materials such as plywood or metal panels; it's exposed to incoming flames from all sides.

  • A macronutrient is a dietary component needed in relatively large amounts, while micronutrients are needed by the body in small quantities. Dietary sources of macronutrients include vegetable oils, fats, meat and poultry. Examples of micronutrients include vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that may be obtained from a diet high in fruits and vegetables.

    The three primary macronutrients contained within food are fat (lipids), carbohydrate (or sugars), and protein. The human body includes all three macronutrients on its list of things it needs to survive, but individual people have different sensitivities to each type on the nutrient distribution scale from 5% for people with celiac disease who avoid gluten-containing food items. https://borates.today/boron-supply-developing/

  • Campbell_Carol - In addition, when children receive adequate nutrition they may hold longer attention spans. They are also able to focus on schoolwork more readily leading to better grades which would further their economic standing within society. The availability of micronutrients is a key not only towards reducing hunger. But also it improves the education levels among those most affected by the lack of access to a healthy diet.
  • George851 - Deficiencies can lead to poverty when people cannot work efficiently due to exhaustion from illness and poor nutrition. The need for micronutrient supplementation as part of any famine relief effort is paramount. Without it, there will be an increased chance that malnutrition leads to poverty which will likely never end.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Micronutrients are essential in the production of brain chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine. These can improve mood, behavior, and cognitive function (e.g., attention span). Folic acid is crucial to healthy neurological development during pregnancy. Over 400 million people worldwide have low levels of this vitamin which puts them at risk for depression.
  • jessicaallen33 - Micronutrients are essential for human and animal health. Many of the diseases are triggered by a lack of these such as schizophrenia or anemia. It affects productivity in daily tasks like reading. When people who live in poverty areas get access to food with micronutrients it helps them recover from malnourishment. It could then lead to fewer issues with famine relief and poverty.

  • Boron has the potential to act as a green pesticide. The idea is that boron would be given at low doses to plants starting in the seedling stage, ensuring that boron is in every part of the plant. This seems like it has merit because boron only works against certain kinds of insects; its mode of action is not yet well known, but it doesn't work against all organisms, so organisms that didn't need boron wouldn't take up much or any if they ate leaves off treated plants. Boron may prove useful in cancer treatment when paired with chemotherapy. https://borates.today/boron-energy-saving-applications/

  • There is some debate as to whether coal can be considered a clean fuel given its human health and environmental impacts. However, most experts agree that it can, in fact, be made cleaner by the addition of minerals like boron. Coal comes from ancient plant life called peat mosses. Peat mosses are rich in nutrients like nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus which make them very fertile (at the time). But when heated they break down into hydrogen gas or methane gas (depending on their chemical composition) with no tar left over. This leaves behind only water vapor that is released into the atmosphere where it has no adverse atmospheric effects on climate change at all! https://borates.today/clean-fuels-using-boron-for-a-cleaner-future/

  • Campbell_Carol - Boron can be used fairly efficiently in modern diesel engine without any hazardous pollution. The engine is cleaner because it reduces nitrogen oxide emissions, particulates, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide. Fuel savings are also noticeable due to the decreased mass of fuel being consumed by the vehicle. And finally, spectral analysis indicates that an increase in boron fuel efficiency by 5% could lead to a decrease in CO2 emissions by 2%. Comparisons have been made between conventional fuels and boron-diesel fuels with respect to exhaust gas composition for NOx content, HC content and PM10 levels.
  • George851 - For gasoline, sulfur is usually added to help reduce the knock in the engine. Clean fuels are typically low in sulfur, so it doesn't have much of an effect on them. However, if boron were added instead of sulfur, clean fuels would have a bigger impact on reducing emissions. That's because boron increases the combustion temperature of then fuel too high for most compounds that damage ozone to form.
  • jessicaallen33 - They do, boron is crucial to the chemical process of producing clean fuel. The purified element most frequently used in development of commercializable fuels are silicon, boron, phosphorus and oxygen. Boron has proven successful in testing whereas phosphorus is still being considered for viability against scandium or sulfur. Ultimately the success will depend on if lithium-air battery technology can be scaled up commercially to power cars large enough for everyone to use them at their current rate.

  • There are enormous potential applications of this laser technology, most notably in the medical field. The use of extreme low temperature near absolute zero to produce lasers with high power at a low cost for use in medicine is so potentially important that efforts have been undertaken to commercialize this technology. In particular, it could be used as a means to provide laser therapy treatments without the need for topical anesthesia or surface cooling. A less significant but still very applicable application would be in vaporizing spider webs and other accumulated debris from windscreens, windows and other glass objects - if necessary perhaps combined with a degreaser spray wiping system following treatment. https://borates.today/boron-laser-fusion/

  • Campbell_Carol - The proton-boron reaction is one of the most viable proton-source nuclear reactions since protons are abundant in nature or can be readily generated by protons coming down from space during solar storms. Proton-boron fusion releases more energy than any other type of reaction because protons fuse with boron to produce element number 11 (livermorium) which decays quickly into lighter elements.
  • George851 - In space, a rocket fueled by proton-boron fusion could cover vastly greater distances from Earth without requiring as much time or fuel when compared to conventional methods. In addition, because this type of rocket doesn't produce greenhouse gas emissions when powered, it wouldn't add to problems with global warming or contribute to poor air quality near populated areas on Earth's surface ̶ which means it could be used for transportation between cities without negatively affecting pollution levels.
  • jessicaallen33 - Proton-boron fusion is a type of nuclear reaction that can release huge amounts of energy, more than 10 times the amount released by electricity generation. And it's not just the electric grid - the transportation sector could be revolutionized with this technology as well, making combustion engines unnecessary.

  • Boron acid is a compound of boron and hydrogen which creates the highly corrosive substance. Borax, or sodium tetraborate decahydrate is commonly used in household products ranging from pots-and-pans cleaner to toothpaste. Boron acid dissolves the bonds that hold minerals together, making it difficult for plants to grow. When applied heavily enough, this can kill crops and destroy soil composition because bacteria need nitrates in order to be able to break down organic plant matter into nutrients that can then be absorbed by surrounding plants. https://borates.today/boric-acid/

  • George851 - Boric acid is a naturally occurring substance which can be found in trace amounts throughout the environment. In dilute form, boron is relatively safe, and used as an additive to fertilizers and toothpaste. When borax forms into a thick paste however, the large surface area of that paste allows it to stick tightly to human skin or other surfaces. The result is a substance which has been banned from use as a pesticide due to its toxicity for humans and other animals at high doses.
  • Campbell_Carol - However, boric acid's threshold pH for releasing active protons is below human body pH (3.5 - 7), which means that its antagoinsts give off hydrogen ions when dissolved in water or blood or other fluids such as stomach fluids or saliva while their own pH balances becoming more acidic while the diet becomes less acidic; the effect of this is that boron helps regulate high acid levels and fights off yeast overgrowth by causing diarrhea and discharge like an irritant to the digestive tract lining.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boric acid can be applied as a roach killer due to its toxicity, and as such it has two uses: as an insecticide and as an antiseptic. Boric acid is able to kill insects by inhibiting their nervous systems and interfering with energy production. It can be used in a number of capacities. It is comparable to other acids and alkalis, but it buffers weakly, if at all.

  • Boron oxide is an inorganic chemical compound found today as the mineral borax.It is used for making glasses and other goods that require heat resistance or refractive qualities, fireproofing textiles, electron tubes, semiconductors. Other than these industrial applications, boron has no commercial utility today for anything else. Some people are attempting to extract boric acid from it for medicinal purposes, but this seems unlikely given the competitive nature of pharmaceutical innovation. https://borates.today/boron-oxide/

  • National food security is the ability of a country to produce the basic foods it needs for its citizens. Food security encompasses food access, stability and safety. Currently, 20% of households worldwide suffer from chronic hunger, 557 million people are chronically malnourished.

    Food insecurity has become one of the major issues facing societies around the globe, with an estimated 821 million people living with hunger. The number is not insurmountable but it surely indicates that the need to take action now cannot be ignored much longer. There are many complex factors that affect both national and international food security including gender equality, rural-urban migration patterns as well as trade liberalisation programmes etc. https://borates.today/boron-food-security-availability/

  • The reason that boron nitride is such an effective thermal conductor comes down to both the material's atomic makeup and its physical properties. They have a crystal lattice structure that consists of small (1-2 nm diameter) boron nitride "balls" or nanoparticles in a matrix of nitrogen atoms, forming one continuous solid. This lattice allows for high levels of thermal conduction, making it about 8 times better than silicon at allowing heat to flow through it.

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Hexagonal BN has excellent thermal and chemical stability, which makes it the perfect candidate for these types of heavy-duty applications. It can be included in ceramic materials to give them self-lubricating properties making them a great option for bearings or steelmaking purposes.
  • George851 - Boron nitride is fairly resistant to oxidation. It has good intrinsic electric properties and can be textured so it can further enhance its electrical functions. Boron nitride's primary drawbacks are the fact that it's relatively expensive and not as easily manipulated as silicon material like aluminum oxide (alumina) for example. Exporting materials out of China might prove difficult because of boron nitride’s ability to react chemically with water or air, thus requiring special methods and means of storage and transport.
  • jessicaallen33 - it is a ceramic material, which means it is much more durable than a metal because it does not oxidize. But to become a "thermal conductor", boron nitride needs to be heated up for hours or days in an oven at very high temperatures to sinter the powder into its finished shape. If you're really impatient and don't care about quality, you can just pour the raw powder onto your aluminum sheet and heat it up over time - although this will likely result in poor heat spread characteristics.

  • Combating large-scale fires caused by fossil fuels like petroleum is very difficult. To solve, this an element called “boron” comes to the rescue. By mixing the boric acid with other stuffs like water or sugar, both after mixing with the boric acid makes it a “delayed action pyrotechnic composition” which is capable of controlling these types of hazardous fires of temperatures around and above 250 degrees Celsius by releasing a white smoke which is also non-toxic in nature.

  • The most common form of boron that we use as a chemical for cleaning pools is called "sodium tetraborate pentahydrate" more commonly referred as “borax”. It is used because it dissolves easily in water. Boron increases the pH of the water by combining with hydrogen ions to form boric acid, which then helps to dissolve organic compounds that would otherwise create scum on top of the pool's surface. https://borates.today/boron-in-pools/

  • jessicaallen33 - One of the cool features of using boron in cleaning swimming pools is that it doesn't cause any irritation to our skins, it is not harmful for us or the animals and the plants and so much more!
  • Campbell_Carol - Borax is a naturally occurring mineral with a number of household uses, including some in the form of pool additives. It has been found to be effective in removing algae from water and lowering calcium hardness. When it is added to water, it reacts quickly with the water molecules and binds them together into larger clumps that sink to the bottom of the pool where they can be skimmed off. In this way, borax provides some protection from stubborn stains caused by oils or other substances floating on top of the pool's surface which slough off onto things below when it rains -- even though this reaction may cause a noticeable increase in free chlorine levels.
  • George851 - Borax is an excellent cleaning agent that can't harm any of your pool surfaces. It is also effective against calcium deposit build-up, algae, bacteria growth and it's safe for kids and animals. The question of how boron works to clean a swimming pool was best answered by Dr. David Sonnenfeld in his post "The Benefits Of Borax For Swimming Pools".

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Batteries in electric cars are formulated with nickel-cadmium (NiCd) or nickel-iron (NiFe) chemistries. If you're looking to make your own car battery, one way to do it would be to purchase boron and use an old battery for the electrodes. You can easily purchase boron online or at a specialized hardware store for about $10-$20 per 100lbs of the chemical compound.

  • Driving an electric car isn't just about love of the environment. Not only does it have less pollution, but it's also more affordable for you to drive your new electric vehicle every day due to lower gas prices. Furthermore, our careful calculations show that electric vehicles are even cheaper than gasoline ones on a lifetime basis! Batteries are durable and last over 20 years so if anything happens during your two hour commute, there will be many hours worth of juice left in them at all times too. Imagine how different this Planet Earth would look if everyone drove less polluting vehicles?

  • Boron is often added to oil and gas reservoirs because it enhances the porosity of rock strata of reservoirs, markedly increasing flow rates by enabling reservoir fluids to permeate more deeply into the rocks. Boron compounds are present in common rock types such as granite, shale, etc., so adding boron tends to increase porosity in any kind of reservoir. The problem with this process is that the naturally occurring borates that may cause problems for downstream processing at refineries or power plants. So while borates can dramatically improve production within a particular geologic formation, they do not always translate into higher production overall because borate pollution downstream must be dealt with before any new process can commence.

  • jessicaallen33 - Boron is added to increase production within reservoirs that are more permeable, increasing flow rates. The process of borates may cause problems for downstream processing at refineries or power plants. There can be complications when borates interact with other elements in the rock which might lower the value of the reservoir.
  • Campbell_Carol - Energy companies are using boron to increase production of oil and gas by enhancing porosity in reservoirs. The problem is that this process increases the amount of borates present, which can be problematic at refineries or power plants.
  • drLisatorres - Boron in oil/gas reservoirs can dramatically improve production. However, the borates in these reservoirs are problematic downstream due to their high solubility. The result is that borates tend to leach into the flowback water or produced fluids during flowback or production operations. I have read about it on borates today.
  • George851 - So, by optimizing the boron levels in a particular reservoir using our proprietary technology we can dramatically improve production and avoid costly remediation of issues downstream at refineries or power plants. Good to hear that!

  • It is important to take precautions when handling powerful rare earth magnets, even one small sphere could cause harm. The neodymium magnet has the strongest permanent magnetic field in production and should always be handled with care because fingers may get pinched between two attracting poles or chips form on their surface by jumping at an attractive metal object that contains iron; these dangerous objects never come into a contact unless absolutely necessary for scientific research purposes only! Fingers are very susceptible organs so I recommend wearing gloves while working around any type of strong (or potentially hazardous) materials like this particular brand-new product line called "neo". It gives you more freedom than regular rubber ones but still provides enough sensitivity where several different kinds of jobs can get done without ever taking them off.

  • Magnetically coupled pumps are an excellent choice for any application where there is the potential of liquid seeping into your unit. They have two main advantages over non-magnetic ones, in this case, if you become obstructed, it can continue operating without damaging yourself or other components because they're magnetically connected and separated only by thin air spaces between their impeller blades. The corrosion damage risk when using magnetic couplings disappears entirely thanks to being isolated from metal all around them.

  • Boron is a natural element that can provide efficiency in providing energy. It helps meet the demand for clean and renewable sources, acting as an additive to coal-powered power plants rather than adding amines or removing sulfur with scrubbers which are much more expensive options at $100 million per plant versus billions of dollars needed if those two methods were used instead.
