  • According to Davidson's newest reports, some think that 5E's successful NASDAQ offering, which took place on March 15th, was a reasonable (and, some may argue, long overdue) option, considering the company's principal assets are headquartered in the United States. Also, NASDAQ: FEAM's selection of the NASDAQ as its primary listing/exchange allows it to pursue capital needs beyond its already-funded SSBF through potential debt/equity capital markets transactions, strategic partnerships, government loans/grants, and other project finance mechanisms.

  • There are a few reasons why Borophene is thought to be better than graphene. https://borates.today/borophene-graphene/

    First, Borophene is a two-dimensional material that is made of boron atoms, whereas graphene is made of carbon atoms.

    Second, Borophene has a hexagonal lattice structure, which makes it stronger and more stable than graphene.

    Finally, Borophene can be made to have different properties by varying the number of boron atoms in the lattice structure, while graphene has very limited variability.

  • jessicaallen33 - Methane is an important industrial gas, used in the production of numerous chemicals and fuels. The most common way to produce methane is via steam reforming of natural gas. However, this process requires high temperatures and significant energy input.
  • George851 - An alternative approach to methane production is photothermal CO2 methanation. In this process, CO2 is photoexcited (i.e., stimulated to release energy) using low-power lasers. The released energy then drives a chemical reaction between the CO2 and hydrogen that produces methane.
  • Kimberly_Adams2320 - The methanation of carbon dioxide is a relatively new technology and there is still much room for research and development in this area.
  • andrewjackson6626 - The methanation of carbon dioxide using concentrated solar radiation has considerable industrial implications. Not only does this process result in the production of methane, but it also does so using a renewable energy source.

  • Glass and ceramics manufacture account for half of the boron's commercial utilization. On the other hand, fertilizers account for the other half, and boron's rising applications have plenty of space for expansion. Solar panels, neodymium magnets, and other critical, advanced materials improvements have all presented a rapid growth potential for boron, which has reduced its dependency on traditional income streams substantially. And, to meet the increasing demands for the element, around the world, 5E (NASDAQ: FEAM) is uniquely positioned to answer this call.

  • It is true that boron reduces carbon dioxide levels. When ingested, boron is converted into boric acid which forms a weak bond with CO2. https://borates.today/boron-reduces-carbon-dioxide/

    This makes it possible for the body to expel more carbon dioxide through the lungs.

    The connection between boron and carbon dioxide has not been thoroughly studied, but there is some preliminary evidence that suggests boron may be helpful in treating conditions like asthma and emphysema.

    More research is needed to determine whether or not this is really the case,

  • Gorilla Glass is made by chemically strengthening a thin layer of glass, making it less likely to break. https://borates.today/apple-and-boron/

    The process begins with the manufacture of standard soda-lime glass. This type of glass is made by heating pulverized limestone and soda ash to form a thick liquid that is then poured into moulds to create sheets of glass.

    To make Gorilla Glass, the standard soda-lime glass is then sent through a tempering oven. In the tempering oven, the hot glass is quickly cooled by being sprayed with cold air from a jet engine.

    This rapid cooling toughens the surface of the glass, while leaving the interior soft and flexible.

  • There is a lot of excitement around boron fuel as a potential new super fuel. https://borates.today/boron-fuel/

    But there are still some major questions that need to be answered before it can become a reality.

    Boron is a very light element, and it has some unique properties that make it an appealing candidate for fuels.

    It is non-toxic, and it doesn't produce any harmful emissions when burned.

    And because it is so light, it could potentially be used to create very high-powered fuels that would be much more efficient than traditional fuels.

  • Boron is a naturally-occurring element that can be found in soil, water, and air. https://borates.today/boron-based-insecticides/

    It is often used as an insecticide because it is effective at killing a wide range of insects.

    In fact, boron is so effective at killing insects that it has been used as an insecticide for centuries.

    There are a few different ways to use boron as an insecticide.

    One common method is to dust borax powder around the perimeter of your home or garden.

    This will create a barrier that insects will have to cross in order to enter your home or garden, and the powder will kill them when they come into contact with it.

  • Solar panels are devices that convert sunlight into electricity. They are made up of maze solar cells, which contain a boron-doped n-type semiconductor and an undoped p-type semiconductor.
    https://borates.today/boron-in-solar-panels/

    When light hits the solar cell, it generates an electric field across the two layers of semiconductor. This causes electrons to flow from the n-type side to the p-type side, generating an electrical current.

    Boron is added to the n-type layer of the solar cell in order to increase its electrical conductivity.

    Without boron, the electric field would not be strong enough to cause electrons to flow between the two sides of the cell, and no current would be generated.

  • The meltdown at Fukushima was a nuclear disaster that occurred in March 2011. The disaster was caused by an earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan, causing a power outage at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and leading to the meltdown of three of the plant's six reactors. https://borates.today/boron-fukushima/

    The meltdown released large amounts of radiation into the environment, resulting in the evacuation of surrounding areas and a number of health concerns.

    Studies have shown that the radiation released from Fukushima has led to an increase in cancer rates and other health problems in nearby populations.

  • andrewjackson6626 - Meltdown is a nuclear term that refers to the uncontrolled release of fission products from the core of a nuclear reactor. The melting of the core, or more specifically the uranium and plutonium fuel, results in a highly radioactive soup that can spew out of the reactor and cause all sorts of problems. This soup can get extremely hot, and if it comes into contact with water (as it did at Fukushima), it can create hydrogen gas which in turn can create an explosion.
  • Kimberly_Adams2320 - The fallout from the disaster was extensive, spreading radiation over a wide area and forcing tens of thousands of people from their homes. In addition, cleanup crews have been working tirelessly to try and clean up the plant and contain the radiation.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - On March 11, 2011, a magnitude 9 earthquake struck Japan, triggering a massive tsunami that caused catastrophic damage to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant. The tsunami knocked out the plant's backup power generators, leading to a series of failures that caused a full-blown nuclear meltdown.

  • Boron is a waste product from the production of aluminum. It contains about 9% lithium, which can be extracted by means of a thermal process. https://borates.today/extracting-lithium-boron-waste/

    The first step in the extraction process is to heat the boron waste until it liquefies. The molten boron is then passed through a series of cooling coils, which causes the liquid to solidify into small pellets.

    These pellets are then heated again until they liquefy and the lithium can be extracted.

    The lithium-containing liquid is then cooled and filtered, leaving behind a black slag that contains most of the impurities. This slag can be further processed to remove the remaining impurities and leave pure lithium metal behind.

  • drLisatorres - Sustainable mining for green energy is a process that involves extracting minerals and metals from the earth in an environmentally responsible way. By using sustainable mining practices, we can reduce the amount of damage that is done to the earth, while still extracting the valuable resources that we need to create renewable energy sources. One example of a sustainable mining practice is ore sorting. Ore sorting is a process that uses sensors and lasers to identify and separate valuable minerals from waste material. This helps to reduce the amount of waste that is produced by the mining process, and it also allows us to extract more of the valuable resources from each deposit.

  • Diamonds with blue flashes are caused by light interference. When light hits a diamond, some of it is reflected off the surface and some of it goes into the diamond. The light that goes into the diamond travels through different parts of the diamond at different speeds. This difference in speed causes the light waves to interfere with each other. https://borates.today/boron-blue-diamonds/

    Different colors of light create different types of interference. Blue light creates constructive interference, which means that the waves reinforce each other. This creates a blue flash that you can see when you move the diamond around. Red light creates destructive interference, which means that the waves cancel each other out. This creates a red flash that you can see when you move the diamond around.

  • drLisatorres - Diamonds with blue flashes are highly sought after and can be worth a great deal more than other diamonds. The color is the result of transparent inclusions of rutile, a mineral made up of titanium dioxide. The higher the quality of the diamond, the more intense the blue flashes will be. Diamonds with strong blue flashes are often referred to as "fancy deep blue" diamonds. These rare gems can sell for anywhere from two to five times the price of regular diamonds, depending on their quality.
  • Kimberly_Adams2320 - Finally, another possibility is that the diamond has been treated with a process called fracture filling. Fracture filling is a treatment process that's used to fill in cracks in diamonds.
  • andrewjackson6626 - Another possibility is that the diamond has been treated with a process called irradiation. Irradiation is a treatment process that's used to change the color of diamonds. It involves exposing the diamond to radiation, and this radiation can cause the diamond to turn blue.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - There are a few different things that can cause blue flashes in diamonds. One possibility is that the diamond has a natural feature called a "pip." Pip is short for "pit," and it's basically a small, dark inclusion that's found in some diamonds.

Boron occurs as the free element or in compounds as minerals including colemanite, diborane pentahydride (DBPH), boroformamide dihydrochloride (BFAD), tetraborate pentaoxide hydrate (TBOH) and others.
  • Campbell_Carol - The planet Mars has a small concentration of boron on its surface. Boron is an important element for making steel, and it's also found in our bodies as part of vitamin B12. The presence of this nutrient might be one reason why there are hints that life could have existed on ancient Mars, even without water or air to support it.

  • Boron is a metalloid element that has two allotropes, borax and diborane. It might seem at first glance that these substances would have similar properties, but they are in fact quite different. Boron's ability to act as an oxidizing agent makes it useful for cleaning purposes and also helps with the production of glass and enamel paints. https://borates.today/boron-photocatalysis/

    Diborane on the other hand does not react with oxygen - so its use as a photocatalyst would be limited without some kind of additive that could activate its photoreactivity (such as exposing it to UV light).

  • jessicaallen33 - Photocatalytic oxidation can also be achieved through use of titanium dioxide (TiO2).
  • George851 - Boron is a metalloid element that has three allotropic forms, each with a different crystal structure. The borates have an ortho-para arrangement of atoms which gives them high surface areas and excellent reactivity for oxidizing or reducing agents. This property makes it possible for boric oxide to be used as an oxidizing agent in organic synthesis reactions involving carbonyls, e.g., converting amides into acids by removing the ammonia molecule attached at position -COO-.
  • Campbell_Carol - Boranes have many properties that make them attractive for use in chemical reactions requiring high temperatures or pressures not easily achieved with other substances - they can be used as an oxidizing agent, reducing agent, or reagent; under alkaline conditions they act as a Lewis acid; when combined with nitrogen gas they form nitriles which are intermediates in the synthesis of amino acids from their respective sugars.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron and photocatalysis are both very interesting topics. Boron is a metalloid element that has only one stable isotope, boron-10. It was discovered in 1808 by the Irish scientist Robert Boyle, who called it "inflammable air".

  • Vulcan Energy is looking to expand its operations in the mining and production of lithium. The company's current focus is on geothermal brine resources, but they have plans to increase their investment in lithium extraction technology over time. Lithium extraction will be done by using hot water at temperatures near 400 degrees Fahrenheit which allows for a lower cost process than traditional methods like solvent-based evaporation or ionizing radiation. https://borates.today/vulcan-energy-resources/

    The goal with this expansion into energy exploration is twofold: first, it will provide an additional source of revenue so that Vulcan can continue its work on renewable energies without depending solely on government subsidies; second, it could lead to more efficient batteries being developed for electric vehicles (EVs).

  • Boron is a trace mineral that suppresses bacterial infections. It does this by preventing the bacteria from sticking to cells, which would allow them to grow and replicate more easily. https://borates.today/boron-health-benefits/ In addition, boron also prevents the production of essential proteins for these harmful bugs' survival tactics. Bacteria are unable to grow in boron-enriched water, and when they do grow it becomes inactive because of the lack of boric acid which prevents them from metabolizing properly.

As such, the struggle against micronutrient deficiency requires an approach that encompasses agriculture; economic empowerment; education on nutrition; reduction in hunger; promotion of healthy diet patterns; safe drinking water and sanitation, etc.

  • smithjamess221 - Boron is a nutrient that many micronutrient studies have shown to be inadequate in the typical human diet. The World Health Organization recognizes boron as a major player in regulating bone mineralization and synthesis and has set an "adequate daily intake" of 2 mg per day for adults. Boron proves useful for both men and women looking to improve their bone health, assisting them not only with creating stronger, more dense bones but also with lessening the pains osteoarthritis brings for those suffering from joint-related pain disorders.
  • jessicaallen33 - The World Health Organization has found that the most common micronutrient-related health risks for adults and children are iodine, iron, and vitamin A deficiency. However, even with the addition of these nutrients to our food supply such as in crops such as fortified salt or enrichment of flour, we still haven't eradicated deficiency worldwide. This is because some people refuse to eat certain foods because of allergies or dislike of the taste. Even if they eat enough food to meet their nutrient needs based on a daily caloric intake which is determined by their height and weight and activity level, they still lack adequate micronutrients in their diet due to incomplete consumption.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - The facts are that the WHO does not mention boron in its database of micronutrients. In fact, Wikipedia lists boron as a chemical element and makes no mention of it being a nutrient. Micronutrient deficiencies have been studied by the World Health Organization but this is another subject altogether.
