  • Boron is a chemical element with the symbol Bo and atomic number 5. It is a metalloid found in small amounts of minerals such as colemanite, or borax (sodium sulfate). https://borates.today/boron-paper-mills/

    Boron has no stable isotopes so it does not occur naturally on Earth. The only natural boron we know about was present in tiny amounts at one time on earth, but it has since been removed by geological processes; this substance was called "borane" until 2006 when its name changed to avoid possible trademark issues.

  • martinezcharles660 - Boron is a chemical element with the symbol B and atomic number 5. It is a metalloid found in small amounts in borax and other minerals. Boron is mainly used in electronics, where it is used as a doping agent to change the electrical conductivity of silicon materials. Silicon-based semiconductors are essential for the fabrication of modern electronics devices such as transistors, microchips, and solar cells.
  • Kimberly_Adams2320 - As an electronic material, boron is used as a dopant in field-effect transistors, solar cells, and LED devices. A dopant is a chemical element or compounds added to a semiconductor to change its electrical properties. In most cases, dopants are added to increase the number of charge carriers (electrons or holes), which results in increased current flow and higher performance. Boron is a natural choice for use as a dopant because it has one of the highest electron affinities of all elements. This means that it donates electrons easily, making it an excellent doping agent for silicon-based electronics.
  • drLisatorres - Without boron, our modern electronics would not be possible. It's used in nearly every smartphone, computer chip, and LED light bulb in existence.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron is a necessary component of semiconductor materials like silicon and germanium. It helps control the flow of electricity through these materials, making it possible to create small, highly efficient electrical switches called transistors.

  • drLisatorres - Silly Putty also bounces, but not as well as a rubber ball. This is because Silly Putty is made of silicone oil and clay. When the silicone oil and clay are mixed together, they form a cross-linked polymer. This means that the oil and clay molecules are linked together, and this makes the material stronger.
  • andrewjackson6626 - Silly Putty is an interesting material because it has a property called thixotropy. This means that Silly Putty will change from a solid to a liquid if it is agitated (mixed around).
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Silly Putty is non-toxic and can be easily cleaned up with soap and water. It also doesn't stain or stick to fabrics. However, silly putty should not be ingested as it can cause intestinal blockages.
  • Campbell_Carol - Silly putty is a type of polymer that bounces, stretches, and can be molded into different shapes. It was originally created by accident when GIs during World War II was looking for a rubber substitute that could be used in tires and boots.

  • There are a few companies currently exploring the use of geothermal energy to extract lithium from brine. For example, Vulcan Energy is using this technology in Nevada, and they claim that they can extract lithium at a lower cost than traditional methods. https://borates.today/vulcan-energy-resources/

    Geothermal energy is created by harnessing the heat from the Earth's core. This heat can be used to generate electricity, or it can be used to extract valuable minerals like lithium from saline water. Lithium is an important mineral for battery production, and so there is a growing demand for it worldwide.

  • George851 - There are a few companies that are looking into the potential of using geothermal energy to extract lithium. Vulcan Energy is one of them. They have a process that they developed called the ALPS Method (Alpine Lithium Production System), which uses geothermal energy to heat up brine water until it turns into steam. This steam is then used to extract lithium from the surrounding rocks.
  • davidgarcia27 - The potential for lithium production from geothermal brines has only recently been recognized. The majority of the world's known lithium reserves are found in Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina in the so-called "Lithium Triangle." These countries share common Andean geology that is well suited for geothermal energy development and lithium production.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Geothermal energy is the use of heat from the Earth's interior to generate electricity or to do other useful work. Lithium is a soft, silver-white metal that belongs to alkaline earth metals. It has a melting point of 177.3 degrees Celsius (351 degrees Fahrenheit) and a boiling point of 1,492 degrees Celsius (2,734 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • Campbell_Carol - So far, there hasn't been a lot of commercial-scale success with geothermal lithium extraction, but it's an interesting technology that could have big potential in the coming years.

  • The primary advantage of BNNT over CNT is that the former can be easily tuned to specific applications by varying its length and/or diameter. https://borates.today/3d-metal-printing/

    BNNTs are often used for precision mechanical devices, such as valves and turbines; this property makes them well-suited for industrial use. They are also better at resisting heat than any other nanotube-type material yet discovered, which could make them attractive for high temperature applications.

  • George851 - The benefits of BNNT over CNT are as follow: -BNNTs are easier to fabricate and can be made with lower power levels. -Bare polymer nanotubes (BPN) offer a route to large- diameter, high-quality single-walled carbon nanotube fibers without the need for tedious post fabrication processing steps such as annealing or drawing. -Low production cost due to their simplicity and ease of fabrication. -The absence of defects in BPNs makes them ideal candidates for use in electron microscopy images with high resolution, contrast, brightness and color saturation because they have no internal reflections that would interfere with the image capture process.
  • davidgarcia27 - BNNT ( Bulk Nanotube Networks for energy storage ) is a technology that stores energy in the form of an advanced electrochemical cell, which can be used to store electricity and power homes. Batteries are limited in their ability to release power quickly during sudden bursts of demand such as when your phone battery dies at the worst possible moment or you find yourself without electric lights in the middle of winter. The new breed of batteries being developed by scientists around the world may change all this because they could provide fast-recharging capacity with unprecedented levels of safety and efficiency.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - -BNNT structures can be grown on a variety of surfaces, including textured or nontextured surfaces. This allows for a much easier manufacturing process due to the ability to grow the nanotube scaffolds anywhere in 3D space with little effort. -BNNT fibers have a higher tensile strength than their carbon fiber counterparts and do not lose their shape when pulled at certain lengths, meaning they are ideal for use in medical devices such as stents and coronary angioplasty balloons where high levels of tension may be needed.
  • Campbell_Carol - Benefits of BNNT over CNTs: -BNNTs are more flexible, durable, and have a higher surface area. -They can be tuned to different frequencies by varying the voltage across them. -This makes them ideal for creating an electrical contact with a particular material or device.

Some people also believe that boron may help improve hair health and reduce wrinkles. However, more research is needed to confirm these claims.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron is a mineral that is found in soil, water, and plants. It is necessary for plant growth and development. Boron is also necessary for the healthy growth of bones and joint cartilage. It helps the body to use calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus to keep bones strong. Boron is also involved in the production of hormones and in the absorption of vitamin D from the sun. Some people take boron supplements to treat arthritis, osteoporosis, weak bones (osteopenia), menopausal symptoms, or low testosterone levels.

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Electric Vehicle batteries have a lot of benefits over the traditional gasoline engines, but one of the lesser-known benefits is that they benefit from boron. Boron is a chemical element that is used in a wide variety of applications, including electric vehicle batteries. Here are two reasons why electric vehicle batteries benefit from boron: 1. Boron improves the electrical conductivity of battery electrodes. This improved conductivity helps to improve the performance and life of the battery. 2. Boron helps to protect against corrosion and degradation of the battery electrodes. This extended life helps to keep your car running longer without having to replace the battery as often.
  • Campbell_Carol - Boron has been found to increase the charging capacity and lifespan of electric vehicle batteries. It also helps to protect against damaging corrosion, meaning that your battery will stay in good condition for longer.

  • Campbell_Carol - There are a few different boron diets out there, but the principle behind all of them is that boron helps improve bone health and reduces inflammation. Some people also believe that it can help with weight loss, though there's not much evidence to support that claim. That said, boron is a very important mineral for human health, and most people don't get enough of it. It's found in leafy green vegetables, nuts, legumes, and fruit. So if you're looking to improve your bone health or reduce inflammation, adding more boron-rich foods to your diet is a good idea.
  • George851 - Boron is a mineral that is found in small amounts in soil and water. It is important for human health, but the amount of boron that people need each day is not well known.

  • Boron is a mineral that is essential for plant growth. It is mainly used as a fertilizer to improve crop yields. Boron also helps plants to better absorb magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus from the soil. Farmers often use boron to treat crops that are low in magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus. https://borates.today/boron-farm/ . In recent years, boron has become more popular as a crop nutrient supplement. This is because boron deficiencies are becoming more common in agricultural soils, especially those that are sandy or low in organic matter.

  • Boron is an element essential to plant life. It was discovered by Friedrich Wohler in 1828 and its existence as an element was proved the following year. Boronics are substances containing boron or compounds with borate esters; they are used in metalworking fluxes to prevent the intense heat created during welding from melting bits of steel into the weld line rather than just producing a weld. https://borates.today/boron-building-block-urbanization/

    Moreover, boron is a mineral that is found in small quantities in many different parts of the world. It has a variety of purposes, including agriculture, glass production, and metallurgy. Some countries that use Boron extensively for these and other purposes include the United States, Canada, Chile, China, Mexico, and Peru.

  • George851 - Boron is a key component of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technologies. When boron is added to calcium carbonate, it forms a solid compound called boron carbide (BC). BC can absorb CO2 from ambient air and hold it permanently in a solid form. This process not only removes greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, but also creates an valuable byproduct – clean energy. The thermal energy released when BC absorbs CO2 can be used to generate electricity, making CCS a renewable source of energy.
  • davidgarcia27 - In any case, boron is a very important mineral for overall health and should be included in your diet whenever possible. Some good sources of boron include nuts, fruits, vegetables, and legumes.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - There is some speculation that boron may play a role in the decarbonization of cells. One theory is that boron helps to activate an enzyme called carbonic anhydrase, which is responsible for the release of CO2 from blood cells. However, more research is needed to determine if this is actually the case.

  • Lithium does not exist in elemental form in nature, but it is found in certain minerals, primarily spodumene (LiAlSiO4). The mineral form of lithium is extracted from dry distillation of the kelp called Diatomaceous Earth (DE), which naturally contains traces of lithium. The infertile layer at the ocean floor has high concentrations of lithium because it was swept there by strong currents over time. These currents cause heavy erosion and push particles with heavy metal content up to an area where deposit builds up. https://borates.today/lithium-stocks-watch/

  • Campbell_Carol - The metal lithium has become an ever more valuable resource in recent years, and is currently ranked at number 13 on the list of the 23 most expensive metals. The main reason for its value arises from two particular features that distinguish it from other elements: it's highly reactive and rare. There are only about 150 million metric tons of lithium currently available, with reserves getting smaller every day as demand continues to increase. Given these two factors, prices are expected to rise exponentially over the next few decades.
  • George851 - Many materials come into contact with substances during an everyday experience - often many, many at once. But nothing can be stored in any type of container without changing and eventually releasing that container's original contents. So long as something remains inert for very long periods of time, it will be able to store just about anything without posing a risk to anything nearby or nearby storehouses alike!
  • davidgarcia27 - Lithium is valuable because lithium is a metal with low reactivity. It was the discovery of its low permittivity and high melting point that led to its widespread use in such applications as batteries, pharmaceuticals and lubricating greases.

  • When an electric current travels through a permanent magnet, it generates magnetic fields from wire coils. As a result, strong electromagnetic properties emerge. As a result, an electromagnet may be utilised to pull heavy objects long after the electric current has been switched off. Electromagnets have the advantage of being less efficient than permanent magnets. As a result, wind turbines with a high magnetic field can provide better results. They're used in situations where electric powertrains would be wasteful or ineffectual. Click here for more information: https://borates.today/boron-magnets-wind-turbines/

  • A study conducted by a team of researchers from China and the United States found that boron-based salts seem to have a great potential for improving lithium-ion batteries.

    The current lithium-ion battery design has major drawbacks, stemming from the use of a liquid electrolyte with heavy metal ions such as Li+ or Na+, which can cause short circuits and fires in cases where electrodes react together too quickly. In contrast, boron-based salts only have one charged ion—the metal borate Bor(3+)—which is stable enough to provide high conductivity without being flammable. https://borates.today/boron-salts-batteries/

  • davidgarcia27 - Lithium-ion batteries are considered safer than conventional cells because they have no need for electrolyte fluid. The layer of insulation in the cell is designed to prevent short circuits, but if it's breached, there's nothing to catch fire. Improved battery density can be achieved by creating higher capacity boron-based lithium compounds that could compete with graphite in the anode material of rechargeable lithium batteries without any increase in cost or weight.
  • Campbell_Carol - The only benefit of boron-based salts over lithium is that boron-based salts have a longer lifespan. But since they don’t have any other benefits, this hardly makes the case for them. Whenever you have a technology with a shorter life span, it’s safer to use a different technology! So if you want a longer-lasting battery with less risk of catching on fire, use one made from aluminum or magnesium instead.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - There are too many variables to explore them all here, but it seems that the top reason is boron's ability to help three-dimensional growth during electrodeposition. That also suggests its potential for use in polymer batteries with fillable/changeable electrodes or dual-layer electrode chemistries. Boron has a lot of unusual properties which make it worth exploring for new battery applications.

  • Boron aids plants in the uptake of nutrients, which leads to healthy crops and ensures food security. It also helps regulate plant hormones for proper growth. Deficiencies in boron result in stunted plant growth and will eventually show up in our diets (no matter how much we try and feed it to them). Plants need more than 39 elements for growth, boron is essential here because it belongs to a group called “micronutrients”- they are needed by organisms but only present in very small amounts (in contrast with macronutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, or fats). https://borates.today/boron-borates-stability-food-security/

Calcium calms nerves and muscles, helps utilize Vitamin D, encourages the digestive system to work at its best, supports a healthy immune system so your body can heal more quickly from illnesses and increases bone strength.
  • Campbell_Carol - A timely supply of boron-deficient crops could prove pivotal in future food security issues but the cost related to utilizing this nutrient would require a reduction in chemical fertilizers or growth hormones otherwise already applied on some crops causing danger for our natural environment.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Yes, boron is an essential part of the process of transporting nutrients to plants. This need for boron in most plants was not initially seen as important because many types of soil contain sufficient amounts. Studies have shown that increasing levels of boron will effectively increase growth rates and produce greater yields. Boron also helps control pH balance which can be expensive to maintain if done after maturity by applying the proper fertilizer.

With an increased surface area due to a lattice structure to increase conductivity, these devices have a much higher energy density than any aqueous or organic polymer-based battery alternative because they run at three orders of magnitude higher voltage – 1 volt per square inch versus 10 volts per square inch – and have no degradation from charging and discharging cycles so they simply last longer.
  • Campbell_Carol - Boron Microsupercapacitors are powerful, lightweight batteries that may be the answer to increasing battery capacity in phones, tablets, and any other device with relatively small-sized devices.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron Microsupercapacitors are made of layers that are less than one nanometer thick, allowing for orders of magnitude higher power density. One boron chip can store up to 20 times the amount of energy as a traditional lithium-ion battery because it's thinner, lighter, and more durable. Furthermore, they charge faster - 8-12 minutes instead of 8-12 hours. They also have an infinite storage time - there is no danger of overcharging or overheating which means you will never have to replace your micro-supercapacitors battery.

  • Boron is a mineral that helps support bone health and the formation of sex hormone receptors. It also influences brain function, reducing depression and boosting cognitive performance by improving memory retention. Evidence has shown boron supplementation to reduce hot flashes in menopausal women as well as increase testosterone. Thus, like other minerals like magnesium or calcium, it's important for everyday health! https://borates.today/boron-diet/

  • George851 - Boron is one of the most significant missing links in North American diets. It's an essential mineral that many people are deficient in today. The recommended dosage is just 1mg per day for women, 19-30 years old. For men, it's 3mg per day while pregnant women should be taking 6-10 mg per day while breastfeeding or trying to conceive because boron supports skeletal growth during pregnancy and through lactation which often negates any effects of maternal care on bones in later life.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron has long been thought to contribute to bone density, muscle strength, and healthy skin.
  • Campbell_Carol - Fruits & vegetables are the best sources of boron. A good apple contains 1 mg of boron, an orange has 0.8mg, a banana has 0.3mg, and strawberries contain 2.8mg per cup! Most fresh produce is made up of 60-80% water so not all fruits and vegetables will have appreciable amounts of boron in them because some are predominately cellulose which does not hold water well.

  • The Boron-Borates Field is found in the Mojave Desert of eastern California, centered on the southern reaches of Death Valley. There are 148 known occurrences for boron, which can be organized into five chemical zones based on composition and origin. The old occurrence at Rancho Seco has been mined for years. The East Boron Mine still operates to this day. Yes, much borax came from there but much more has come from Borateville where magnesium tetraborates were produced. https://borates.today/boron-california/

  • George851 - There are about 10 trillion pounds of borate minerals in the North Coast region, specifically the Klamath-Del Norte-Modoc counties. Nearly all of these reserves belong to two types: metaborate and tetraborate - which have multiple unique properties that make them attractive for things like use as cat litter or fire retardant materials. The primary goal is typically to create a product that would be able to replace petroleum-based substances used for many purposes today.
  • Campbell_Carol - The Boron-Borates Reserves in California are one of the richest in the US if not worldwide, with a percentage higher than that of China for instance. More precisely, they rank 3rd among all countries containing borates point deposits or hot springs with 31 million metric tonnes. Their reserves comprise about 4% of the World's total borate reserves and 5% of those located in North America.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - We estimate that there are about 2 billion to relative to the Nation's total reserves of boron minerals. We believe this figure, coupled with the development of global markets, provides compelling long-term challenges for California mineral producers and potential opportunities for developers who possess interest in exploiting our state's vast resources.

In response to this, Boron fertilization has been studied as a systematic approach to reducing phyto-pathogen infestation of fruit crops by improving root health. The results show that boron applications at rates as low as 0.004 kg B/ha can reduce fungi density on tomato roots by over 90%.

  • Campbell_Carol - Boron is difficult to guarantee due to low stocks, which are not only dwindling but also must travel long distances before arriving at farms, making them more expensive than they really need to be. This means the cost of applying the right amount of boron is very high.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron (a nutrient) is the new frontier for sustainable agriculture. And yet, here in America it's regularly overlooked by government policymakers. If we could harness boron's power of fertility and crop yield then our country might finally be able to feed its people without relying on pesticides or GMO crops.
  • George851 - Boron (specifically the boron ion) is an essential component for plant health. As such, it is an important nutrient for human health because it helps humans obtain all their nutritional requirements.

  • Electroless nickel boron plating is a chemical metallurgy process that is used for deposition of hard, wear-resistant and corrosion resistant adherent coatings on low carbon steel as well as stainless steel alloys. This type of plating offers good general protective qualities and moderate to high corrosion resistance degree. On the other hand, this coating exhibits noticeable increase in hardness, fatigue strength and abrasion resistance properties against typical industrial service condition abrasive particles. Additionally, adhesion characteristics are excellent with good ductility before scoring or peeling. https://borates.today/nickel-boron/

  • Campbell_Carol - Electroless nickel boron plating is a new and extremely environmentally friendly way of protecting, beautifying - or when desired, creasing parts against corrosion by adding an attractive surface metal film. Electroless nickel boron plating is the only third-party electro-deposition process designed to weld to PVDF® Kynar® or marine grade ASA® polyamides in marine applications. It forms a uniform metallic coating with excellent adhesion to all metals including stainless steel. The color match for electroless nickel boron plating conforms closely with both stainless grades 304L and 316L without any pre-treatment requirement.
  • George851 - However, most industrial parts need corrosion resistance (due to their working environment), and electroless nickel-boron provides very low resistance to corrosion by chlorides.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Electroless nickel boron plating usually does not involve any immersion plating process and, as such, is unparalleled in terms of time and costs. Electroless nickel boron is considered a dark film with good chemical resistance and I feel like it would make an excellent if the expensive or time-consuming option for applications such as medical devices.

  • It's important to note that there is no official list of strategic sectors. Furthermore, one can't apply the same definition of "strategic" in different sectors. For example in medical technologies, where 30% of investments are in non-medical fields like IT and smart energy, it might be better to call these "emerging" rather than "maturing." As such, when discussing investment strategy for groups who invest strategically across sectors it's best not to define core or core-growing industries or mature industries but rather act according to the characteristics of each industry. Hence generalizations about EU economic growth potentials should be avoided because they mislead investors into thinking that companies abroad will work well with their current portfolio construction strategy. https://borates.today/european-mineral-strategy/

  • George851 - Borderless businesses operate by blurring the line between local and global. They grow internationally, not domestically. They can be profitable in areas where they started off as just one of many companies obtaining cheaply manufactured goods that are then sold at high prices to consumers who want an exclusive product or service that is unavailable locally. Over time, these organizations learn how to produce similar products cheaper than their competitors and expand their distribution networks internationally. Eventually they migrate production overseas to take advantage of low-cost labor markets, lower taxes, smaller regulatory burdens, etc., which allows them to undercut everyone else on price while still making good margins on each sale.
  • Campbell_Carol - A lot of companies that operate internationally use different CRMs for each country, but there are some governments that say this is not fair to them and they want all the data collected by multinationals to be collected through one system. The EU has said to agree to this and it will make European data protection laws much stricter. For example, if a company like Facebook has a service in Europe and collects information on anyone who uses it (even if they don't live in the EU), then all of their information would need to go into the new CRM system. This would mean that any other countries that agree (the United States isn't 100% sure) could also introduce stricter security measures for their own citizens.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Strategic EU sectors are set out in the relevant section of the Treaty on European Union, is an integral part of Article 207. The article stipulates that it shall be necessary to take into account natural geographical, economic and social cohesion when nominating strategic sectors.

  • Boron is essential for both plants and animals, but is especially important for plants. Boron is an especially important element because it helps the plant maintain healthy cell walls, which are vital to its structural integrity. Plants also use boron to pull water up through the roots since water doesn't naturally travel through cell walls like this on its own. This ensures that plants can continue to grow at night or in drier conditions where watering would be insufficient. https://borates.today/boron-in-food/

  • Campbell_Carol - Iodine is needed to convert thyroid hormone T4 into the active form of thyroid hormone called triiodothyronine (T3). This conversion not only produces an adequate supply of T3 hormones for the body's needs, but also reduces the risk of developing hyperthyroidism. Iodine is essential not just for adults, but also for children. Pregnant women can suffer from iodine deficiency which leads to lowering in intelligence quotient (IQ), mental retardation or cerebral palsy in infants; hence prenatal supplements are given to pregnant women.
  • George851 - It is true that Boron can impact what we absorb because it has the capability to work as a catalyst/co-factor for many important enzymes.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron also affects levels of estrogen, testosterone, vitamin D, adrenaline, melatonin and other hormones. Boron enhances calcium absorption in the intestines which is essential for healthy bones including preventing osteoporosis. Prolonged or high exposures to boron are not advised.

  • It is true that Boron, which you'll find in the beer and wines you drink (and the water and other drinks and foods in your life) can also be used to make ammonium. Proponents of this technique say that because not enough boron is finding its way into our diets we should add it to our food, but really we all need to worry about eating healthy balanced diets with lots of fruits and veggies. The best thing we can do for ourselves? Drink plenty of clean water! Many beverages like wine contain small amounts of borax or sodium borate which helps prevent spoilage by keeping microbes at bay when storing or serving drinks. https://borates.today/boron-beer/

  • Campbell_Carol - In a laboratory setting, experiments have been done using boron as a catalyst that changes carbon into ammonia. The short answer is that you will need to stop drinking beer if you want the ammonia! In order for this reaction to take place, scientists must use high density substances in conjunction with condensing catalysts. Boron was naturally deemed appropriate due to its strength in ionic structures and its anti-catalyst properties when it comes in contact with other substances. If you are patient enough to watch the process through lab safety goggles, there are two main differences when compared to what happens in your stomach when consuming beer.
  • George851 - Borates are also found in beer though their concentration is not high enough to significantly alter the traditional flavor. Brewers might add borate salts to their finished product if they want to reduce bacterial infections caused by wild yeast or fungus which often leads to infected beer naturally near the end of fermentation when alcohol levels are highest.
  • davidgarcia27 - There is a procedure to form ammonia from boron, and it's been used as a means of achieving cleaner air for centuries in traditional cultures before the invention of catalytic converters. In fact, some studies have shown that it can be more effective than catalytic converters at reducing certain air pollution gases such as NO2 and CO.

  • Boron Carbide is a hard, brittle, ceramic material with a very high melting point. It's valued for its stability at high temperatures and its ability to resist oxidation. Boron carbide is used in the aerospace industry as an insulator in turbine shrouds. The melting point of boron carbide is much higher than nickel alloy which makes it capable of withstanding much higher operating expenses without crumbling or corroding over time. https://borates.today/boron-aerospace-defence/

  • George851 - Many engineers at NASA were originally drawn to boron carbide due to the material’s unique properties. Boron carbide is an excellent candidate for replacing aluminum in aerospace applications because of its ability to withstand extreme loads while resisting corrosion, increasing thermal conductivity, and decreasing weight. Boron Carbide has also been used by companies all over the world for years.
  • davidgarcia27 - It's also extra difficult to form since it melts at 27000 Celcius which means its use should be limited for purposes other than assembling cars or racehorses (pun not intended). But this very same property makes it perfect for space travel because other materials which are easier to work with (such as aluminum) melt at 1400 C.

  • The manufacturing process for boron-based electrolytes has been perfected by Professor Zhong Lin Wang, who holds 500 patents.
    A group of students demonstrated the use of these boron-based electrolytes to enhance cycling performance for lithium-ion batteries in cars at a mock car show where they won 100,000 dollars in prize money.

    The main difference between regular salt and boron-based salt is that while one molecule of regular salt contains two atoms, one atom being sodium and the other being chlorine sometimes another atom will be added - potassium or magnesium - but with borons, it's just one type. https://borates.today/boron-salts-batteries/

  • George851 - Funding must come from some government agency or lab because it requires either federal support or support from a private entity participating in some way itself in the research effort.
  • Campbell_Carol - The idea of using boron-based salts for lithium-ion batteries really needs more study before confirming their safety and validity. Boron, on the other hand, is a fantastic element with many uses. Using boron to improve Lithium-Ion batteries would be a lengthy process requiring extensive verification of safety and viability which has not been achieved yet. We may know in 2020 when there is a new round of funding going into supplementing current efforts with borons studies that have started within battery research organization's own laboratories.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron compounds have a long history as a chemical engineering material for stimulating the electrochemical properties of lithium-ion batteries. Specifically, boric acid and bismuth oxychloride can increase the cycle life of commercial LIBs by up to three times that of traditional lithium cobalt oxide (LCO) chemistries—increasing an automobile's expected lifespan from 15 years to 30 years, for example.

  • Boron is a natural substance that features almost no toxicity and little to no potential harm as well as being inexpensive to produce, so it's worth exploring! The benefits of domestic borax include but are not limited to deterring pests from your garden, cutting grease from pans during washing, controlling slugs and snails in the soil through the low pH levels they cannot tolerate. Given its many properties, it's an excellent alternative that can be used safely near children and pets without risk for toxic effects or harming the environment.

  • George851 - Borax is a very toxic substance that can be harmful if ingested. Boron is an element that is found naturally in the earth and cycles through water and soil. It has many uses such as producing television screens, improving materials so they don't corrode, and making household cleaning products like soap and detergent.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Borax is a bleach and it absolutely will remove stains. If you spill some coffee on your couch, pour your borax on top of the stain and rub it around with a cloth or paper towel before you pour water over it to soak up as much as possible. Let that dry, then vacuum. It won't look new but it's faster than trying to scrub at the spot for hours and even if it isn't perfect, most people can do better than appearance since nobody is looking too closely anyway!
  • Campbell_Carol - Boron is also a product widely used for domestic purposes such as cleaning an oven. If you ever have trouble cleaning the bottom of your oven, try inserting pieces of borax-soaked paper towel into the oven, heating it to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 45 minutes. The hotter the better! The heat will vaporize any cleaner that you place inside your oven and when heated to this temperature it can reach parts that are difficult for most other cleaners to reach inside the furnace.

  • George851 - Coffee plants can develop symptoms from a variety of different diseases including necrotic leaf spot, damping-off disease, rust disease, and many others. The severity of the symptoms varies from plant to plant. In general coffee, plants should be handled gently when planted or trans lowered to prevent any spreading of fungal spores that may potentially cause permanent health problems for it.
  • Campbell_Carol - Genetic disorders can occur between different varieties of coffee leading to problems with adaptation or susceptibility to disease. Fourthly environmental hazards such as UV radiation from sun exposure during harvesting might also affect production yielding lower crop yields after seedlings have been struck by this unseen force.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - There are two main reasons why coffee plants develop various symptoms. First, most plant diseases are due to fungi or bacteria that attack the coffee plant either through wounds in the leaf, broken off branches, infections of the root system, scales on the leaves which provide an entry point for pathogens and finally insect infestation which is usually more prevalent at flowering time. Second, some diseases can be caused by deficiencies in water quality or availability of certain nutrients.

  • Boron is not only necessary for building bone, but also t impacts brain function. Boron's ability to act as a natural anti-inflammatory agent may protect the joints and dampen the inflammatory response in arthritis patients with joint pain. Boron has been shown to lower estrogen levels in women, decreasing their risk of developing bone or breast cancer. It is believed that it helps remove calcium from areas where it should not be present, such as the shoulder joint fluid around your bicep tendon at night while you're sleeping.

  • George851 - The Lewis acid can be changed from BF3 to AlCl. This reaction is called a substitution reaction because the formation of the salt replaces or replaces one atom in a molecule, in this case replacing BF with Al. Strong base such as LDA would remove boron instead of aluminum from electron pairing.
  • Campbell_Carol - Boronic acids are synthesized by alkylating an aryl halide with a boron reagent.This is done using the Wittig reaction, which is an organic reaction between an olefin and lithium diethylboroxine. The classic application of this methodology is to convert phenolic compounds to phenolates or alkyl phenols for use as solvents, plasticizers, ethenesulfonyl-chlorides for asymmetric synthesis, but also metallic soaps in analytical chemistry.
  • davidgarcia27 - Methiodide is also a strong base which does not form a salt when it reacts with BF3 and therefore does not use up any boron or aluminum when it reacts. Al2O3 combines really well with benzene ring in mixed alkylhalides that have two different types of substituents, tertiary and methyl groups for example, such as THF.

  • Boron is a chemical element that has both metallurgic and chemical properties, but is never found in elemental form. Boron does not react with other elements to form compounds; it reacts with another boron instead. However, when combined with certain other metallic elements, such as aluminium and titanium, the bonds between borons can be altered and single-atom composites can be created. This makes it possible for light metals to take on the traits of mass metals.

  • Borax mining didn’t pollute groundwater during operation because metallic salts are not soluble in water. Furthermore, it is also one of these rare chemical materials that has a stabilizing self-cleaning effect, so the pond bottom mud surface was frozen by solids to form a protective crust without being exposed dynamically to react with oxidizers. As long as natural atmospheric deposition processes take place over many centuries, boron concentrations will gradually build up and can hold significant amounts of carbon dioxide for tens or hundreds of thousands years. https://borates.today/boron-and-climate-risk/

With all due respect, I think that's something worth considering if you're looking for solutions to climate risk management. The worst that could happen is that you don't like it and simply stop using boron- which would not be much different than stopping using the water in your swimming pool and letting algae take over because you were complacent in maintaining its cleanliness!
  • George851 - Boron content increases strong resistance to creep at high temperatures, excellent wear-resistance at low temperatures, increase corrosion resistance in humid environments are just some of the many attributes that have made this element invaluable for you to include in your protection plan.

  • George851 - Boron is an essential trace element for humans. It helps form cell walls and it's vital for bone health. One study in Tanzania, Africa found that rickets was the most common finding among children which was about 1/3 of all young people studied. This exact same condition can be reversed with boron supplementation. So by providing these coffee laborers living in rural areas with additional boron, they would not only have higher levels of boron to work into their cells, but also increased bone density which means increased strength and energy plus a healthier body overall.
  • Campbell_Carol - Boron's effects on crop development have been studied extensively in Cereals (wheat) but less is known about its effect on vegetables. The explanation for its benefit in cereals is that the boron moves through the leaves to the grain head where it is needed more than anywhere else so minimizing losses.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - There are anecdotal reports of increased yields, reduced susceptibility to common crop diseases, better soft fruit set and ripening, better sugar content in tomatoes. There are also claims of reduced application rates of fertilizer when used with superphosphate or micro-nutrients.

  • Boron has been used for over 50 years as a flow improver to increase recoveries from petroleum wells. A flow improver: (1) alters the oil’s adhesion and displacement properties and thus reduces friction loss; (2) produces a thick, low-viscosity product; and (3) aids in the removal of water outboard of production facilities. https://borates.today/how-boron-help-oil-recovery/

  • Campbell_Carol - Boron is a micronutrient that is added to water for oil production by way of fracking wastewater. The process usually relies on two sources of water called ‘injectors’ and the ‘production well’. Injectors pump high-pressure fluids into the earth in order to create small fractures in deep bedrock where viscous oil might have been able to accumulate over time past simpler fracturing events from more recent periods of time.
  • George851 - Boron and other chemicals in the co-solvent (e.g., methanol, ethylene glycol) work by causing the oil to float on top of water and natural gas rather than mix with them. This allows for this easily recovered byproducts, which could be burned off in a flare stack or sold to create energy instead of being vented into the ambient atmosphere.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron is often used with hydrogen sulfide gas injection, an alternative technique for increasing oil recovery rates which can be difficult to use because it requires hydrogen sulfide operations near producing wells.

  • The difference between malnutrition and starvation is that while both involve a deficiency of calories, starving people also lack protein and micronutrients. Starvation kills the appetite while some people who suffer from malnutrition continue to crave food even with dangerously low levels of calories. Others simply lack the support and assistance needed for adequate intake (ie: some children may not be fed by their own parents). https://borates.today/boron-malnutrition-efforts/

  • Campbell_Carol - Amenorrhea is a symptom of malnutrition that can show up with the following symptoms: Dizziness, fatigue, headaches or feeling faint, rapid heart sound or fainting, loss of appetite, weight loss, weakness and skin pallor, confusion and forgetfulness, etc.
  • George851 - Malnutrition happens because the diet does not contain the necessary amounts of vitamins, minerals, or macronutrients. The body needs protein-the essential building block of cells and tissues-along with nutrients like Vitamin C, copper and iron to stay healthy. Vitamins play a role in overall growth while some fats are needed to maintain smooth skin. Zinc is also important for growth and cell division while chromium helps regulate blood sugar levels that prevent hunger pains.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - There are many reasons why malnutrition can happen - involving anything from dietary habits to socioeconomic status to mental health status. To prevent or reduce cases of undernourishment among impoverished populations, it's important to have good hygiene practices in place so any infectious agents are quarantined before infection sets in.

  • There's a lot of debate about whether boron vitamins or other substances offer benefits, and if they do then what those benefits are and why. Much of the research on this topic remains inconclusive at this time. But there may be some evidence to suggest many so-called "vitamins" such as boron might actually be necessary for optimal health at all stages of life. So whether or not it does anything, it would probably hurt no harm to take the supplement as part of an overall focus on good nutrition. https://borates.today/boron-vitamins/

  • Borate salts are widely used across multiple industries, most notably the metal working industry. Borates are an excellent source of protection against thermal damage when in conjunction with other fire extinguishers. They work by either lowering the surface tension on oil fires to reduce their intensity, or extinguishing them entirely when they're mixed with water. While boronics do not contain any halogen scavengers like Cl2 or CO2, their high boiling points allow boricus to effectively penetrate deep into a flame and break it down into non-flammable liquids and gases that disperse harmlessly over time. https://borates.today/boron-zinc-borates-fire-retardants/

  • George851 - Boron Zinc Borates are more environmentally friendly, easier to manufacture, and less expensive than other fire protection chemicals that use organic silicone type materials. They offer superior flame retarding properties, being more effective in minimizing the risks of flammable/combustible gases releasing into the atmosphere. Further, since BZBs have a broad range of application temperatures (−60 °C/+450 °C), they can be used for protection over several industries with improved fireproofing results.
  • Campbell_Carol - Boron has been shown to create a protective barrier against toxins from fire smoke by coating or "de-adhering" irritating particles from the airways. In rodents with borates inserted into their lungs around 85% protection was observed when exposed to pulmonary smoke fumes caused by burning tires.
  • davidgarcia27 - Boron is a natural mineral, and the most abundant mineral in our earth's crust. It can be found in many food items including berries, apples, raisins, nuts and even onions. Zinc is an enzyme that binds to carbohydrates and is vitally important for growth and development of the human body.

  • Boron's role in cleaning a pool is to help sanitize the surface of the pool and some of the equipment. Boron, while more rare than chlorine or bromine, will corrode rubber products used in a pool system. For example, the diaphragms that pressurize a skimmer can malfunction if exposed to boron for an extended period of time. Incompatible metals such as copper and lead will also combine with boron on stainless steel surfaces to create deep pitting corrosion facilities which ultimately result in physical failure from weakening of structural standards. A good analogy would be how iron reacts with water—rusting away into an unusable solid state after prolonged exposure.

  • davidgarcia27 - Borax (sodium tetraborate) can be purchased at any grocery store for less than $1.00 per pound. It's safe to handle and great for fighting algae too! Yet it doesn't do much for concentrations of copper or cyanurates that may be present in your pool if you're using regular (hard) water.

  • The ABR Fort Cady project is unequivocally a thing that happened. This school for military wives and children has been operating since 1978 and offers programs such as pottery, mini golf or crochet labs to take up their spare time. The original plan was to do it on an 80 acre parcel of land donated by the ABR company, but later they found out there was no drinking water rights too so they had to move. When it finally took off and started fundraising in 1982 it bought 160 acres from the Bureau of Land Management which is where the site now resides today near Spring Creek outside Tonopah. https://borates.today/abr-production-triples/

  • Campbell_Carol - The Fort Cady project is a very timely and exciting project for which we're very proud to be working with the community. The gap between drinking water and wastewater contains valuable resources like phosphates which can then be turned into fertilizers. This will help us conserve the limited potable drinking water that we have, as it will take phosphate out of wastewater and put it back in the drinking supply. Unlike other ventures in this field, this one doesn't require any pretreatment other than screening before converting this biomass into ammonium phosphate fertilizer - an environmentally friendly alternative to current practices!
  • davidgarcia27 - They don't have a football team yet, but at least this new field will make up for all of the equipment stolen from them a while back! It will provide a space for them to do training drills during rain at least without having to go too far away or use their old turf indoor field which is tiny and feels outdated with its carpet-partitioned area in one corner.
  • George851 - The dorms themselves look pretty nice from what I've seen, and I think it's great the whole project is going to be heated by a geothermal heat pump. The sports field looks terrible though because there used to be a golf course out there years ago, but then they filled up that area with dirt for whatever reason.

Whereas lithium-ion batteries use a single electrochemical reaction stored in one-third of the battery, NaS and Li-air batteries use two relatively simple reactions stored in 100% of the battery. This means that you will never run out of power because if one effect can't achieve your goal, there's always another which doesn't need you to charge it again afterward.

  • Boron is a very important component of the pharmaceutical industry. The reason for this has more to do with its properties as a solvent and less to do with its chemical reactivity. Boranes make excellent solvents because they dissolve many organic compounds which are insoluble in water, inter alia from polyurethane polymers encountered during the manufacture of latex condoms and other products containing elastomeric materials made from rubber latex or nitrile rubber. In addition, boranes have been shown to promote the dissolution of sparingly soluble metal ores such as uranium. https://borates.today/boron-medicine-well-being/

  • Boron quality does matter in a farm. The better the boron, the more likely minerals will be properly broken down and used by plants. The other argument against low-quality borax is that it contains sodium hydroxide to keep it from caking and keep it soluble. Sodium hydroxide kills weed killers so using them on your plants could allow weeds to grow and eliminate any benefits you get from using borax. https://borates.today/boron-vital-role-agriculture/

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - It does matter if you want your plants alive; Boron is an essential element in healthy plant life. Boron deficiency stunts the seedlings' natural production of cell walls causing leaves to discolor, weakness of vascular tissue (responsible for moving nutrients throughout the plant), and reduced root branching (less roots means more leaves, requiring more water that isn't often present).
  • Campbell_Carol - It matters because boron is essential for plant growth and boron deficiency can eventually cause death, but it's less expensive to buy boron than the higher-quality materials.
  • George851 - Boron quality matters in when adding boron to a farm. Yes, it is advised not to use anything less than Boric Acid Grade 3 when applying an organic, nutrient-rich inoculant on produce. For potatoes and other root vegetables, we apply by soil broadcasting; for fruiting crops like strawberries and pumpkins we rely on sprays. On the whole, this product should be used any time you apply fertilizer or touch your soil with your hands (during harvesting and food handling). The reason for this strong precaution is that because many workers eat without washing their hands after each picking task; since boric acid grade-3 does not wash off easily from the skin due to its sticky consistency.

It does not filter out X-rays or gamma rays. Actually, these high frequency forms of radiation pass through glass quite well, which is why it's important never to use glass microscope slides in classrooms with live demonstrations involving radioactive isotopes because they'll become activated by passing through the window pane and give you a dose of gamma radiation. https://borates.today/boron-protects-against-radiation/

  • George851 - It also slows down neutrons, stopping chain reactions and making power plants safer for eco-conscious consumers.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - It is a metalloid with properties similar to those of silicon and carbon; its physical properties make it ideal for use as a neutron absorber in nuclear reactors because it captures slow-moving neutrons without releasing them or producing radioactive isotopes.

  • There are three types of batteries currently being used for residential energy storage systems - lithium ion, lead acid, and nickel metal-hydride. Lithium ion has the least resistance across the battery lifecycle, making it good for load shapes with a greater proportion of time spent at lower loads. Lead acid provides excellent efficiency at top loading rates, which makes it more popular if applications have heavy discharge rates. Nickel metal-hydride offers medium performance across the board but has the longest lifetime or cycle length between fully charged to fully discharged conditions during use. https://borates.today/boron-battery-systems/

  • The development of thermally stable borosilicate crystals began in the late 1800s. This resulted in a fresh demand for borate metals on the market. Using this technology, Corning Glass Works created Pyrex glass cooking ware. Boron was employed in a rising variety of sectors after WWII. Boron-nitride was first used in Japanese cosmetics. In 1951, a method for making boron fibrils was developed. During this time, the first nuclear reactors were built, and the control rods were made of boron. Authorities dropped 40 tonnes of boron compound over the reactor in 1986 as a precaution to prevent radioactive emission. https://borates.today/boron-metalloid/

  • Lithium-sulfur batteries have an energy density about four times greater than the lithium-ion batteries in use today, and can be charged in a minute. This is because they also have a much higher sulfur content--a significant improvement over other types of lithium-ion cells that use a silica gel electrolyte or a polymer to contain a battery's chemicals.

    Boron has been found to be another element that greatly improves lithium batteries. It not only increases the capacity of the cathode, but it also makes them wetter, which means smoother discharge cycles with less wear on each cycle. Boron was once used back in the '90s when there was more toxicity tied to these type of batteries. https://borates.today/boron-secret-new-battery/

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - It charges half as fast and has twice the lifespan of conventional lithium ion technology. But this technology also brings certain disadvantages such as less stability at higher temperatures, more conductive electrodes leading to about 15 percent lower energy efficiency than in nickel-cadmium chemistries, thus requiring larger cells with greater safety precautions.-
  • Campbell_Carol - The advantages of Lithium-sulfur batteries are that the cathode material is made from abundant, cheap lithium and sulfur atoms and it has three times more energy than a conventional battery.
  • davidgarcia27 - Lithium-sulfur batteries have a lithium sulfur electrode instead of the typical graphite electrode in this type of battery. The result is a battery that's way cheaper than other types and rechargeable to boot. Disadvantages? It doesn't hold as much charge when starting out, but it does eventually get there. There are other disadvantages too - like less power density and voltage stability.

It's important for drinking that what we do here with agriculture and farming because there are a lot of developing countries where people might have a lack of clean water, so they need access to food.

    In Bangladesh or in places in Africa where people don't have enough calorie intake from foods, they rely on cereals so the more people you have eating from cereals, it takes away their drinking water sources because most cereals require a lot of amount of moisture and irrigation during growing process. https://borates.today/boron-food-security-force-good/

  • Boron is required for plants to share nutrition with one another. Boron helps cells make tough, flexible skin or stems and leaves by strengthening their walls or cellulose. It also aids in other chemical reactions within the cell to slow the decrease in sugar's potency. The presence of boron-containing compounds also increases the availability of other minerals such as zinc and manganese, while preventing iron from becoming oxidized and unavailable for use; it can even substitute nutrients when they are not present in sufficient quantities. https://borates.today/boron-plants/

The conversion process of the solar cells depends on the substance they are made from. Adding Boron to the photovoltaic cell surface can increase its reflectivity, or it can be mixed in to make solar cells that include boron atoms within their structure, which reduces losses from incident sunlight that doesn't pass through. https://borates.today/boron-future-solar-energy-efficiency/

  • Boron needs to be recognized as a critical mineral. Many of the Boron-based atomic clusters are more abundant than rare-earth metals. Boron is the third most common element in the Earth’s crust (after oxygen and silicon), which means it can be found practically everywhere. Even though Boron is difficult to extract and mine for commercial purposes, it can be found everywhere, even if you can't find it. Boron has been used for 100 years to make glasses, ceramics, fertilizers, washing powders, detergents, and flame retardants, but now it could be used to make other types of materials, such as rare-earth metals. https://borates.today/boron-critical-mineral/

  • drLisatorres - I think that boron should be added to the periodic table. It's not only an important chemical element but also one of the most useful elements on earth.
  • martinezcharles660 - There have been many attempts at extracting boric acid from various sources. The first attempt was made by Sir Humphrey Davy who tried to separate B2O3 from potash using electrolysis. In 1812, French chemist Louis Pasteur discovered that when heated with carbon dioxide, boric oxide dissolves into water forming hydroboric acid. This process is known today as "Pasteurization".
  • smithjamess221 - The elements that we use every day have their own unique properties. They all come from different places on earth and they each play an important role in our lives.

  • The world is becoming more and more urban. The number of people in cities will increase by 2.5 billion by the end of the century. There are large swaths of land that turn into housing developments and parks. The role of boron in maintaining tree populations is more important now than it has ever been. Most of the population growth in the world is happening in urban areas. The industries that depend on natural resources will be affected by this expansion. Air quality, public health, and food security are all affected by it. It helps regulate water availability for crops. As demand grows for more food to feed people in cities, it's more important than ever. https://borates.today/boron-building-block-urbanization/

  • martinezcharles660 - However, there are also many negative effects of urbanization. Urban air pollution can cause respiratory problems like asthma or lung cancer. People living near highways have higher rates of heart disease. In addition, traffic congestion causes stress which leads to increased blood pressure. This increases the risk of stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. Urban sprawl reduces access to green space and recreational opportunities. More cars mean less walking and biking. Less walking and biking means a greater chance of obesity and diabetes.
  • smithjamess221 - We need more forests because they help clean our environment.

  • Neodymium magnets are incredibly versatile and strong. They are a type of rare earth magnet and such magnets will stick to each other almost like magic. They are chocked full of boron, giving them their amazing magnetic strength through selective binding of the rare earth metal boron to different rare earth oxides, and then synthesizing and sintering them into dense blocks (yielding neodymium magnets). https://borates.today/boron-neodymium-magnets/

  • George851 - Boron is a major component in neodymium and acts as a key ingredient to make magnets stronger. Boron creates the best combination of magnet strength and resistance to demagnetization for steel.

  • As per a study, for coral reefs to survive they need atleast 0.01mg/L of boron in their seawater. In reality, it is found either already pre-mixed with seawater or it is usuallly added alongside as a substitute for a fish tank, for example. Usually, it is required as a Calcium Carbonate or CaCO for the coral reefs to grow and survive in seas and oceans. It also acts a proper bredding ground for microorganisms living in such water floors such as planktonic organisms.

  • It is widely known that malnutrition fueled the world war, but until recently it has not been studied. Boron deficiencies are often the roots of many health issues and malnourishment leads to people being forced into unhealthy situations due to lack of resources.

    At first glance, this may seem like an unrelated topic for a product, but malnutrition can cause mental instability leading some to make aggressive decisions in order to provide food for their families. Controlling boron deficiencies could be one way of preventing problems related to mental illness, crime rates, and more.

    You can read more about how boron can actively help in preventing malnutrition in children especially from the underpriviledge sections of the society from this website.

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Here's an interesting fact I would like to share about fizzy drinks! Bottles of fizzy drinks sold worldwide tend to have a high concentration of boron, a mineral important for helping fight malnutrition. Boron deficiency can contribute to major health problems such as heart disease and arthritis, so having the occasional drink is an easy way to maintain your essential daily boron intake as per a study.
  • jessicaallen33 - Boron is an essential mineral that can contribute to many bodily functions like growth, making up part of your bones and teeth. A boron deficiency may be the underlying cause for illnesses like restless leg syndrome because it affects your nervous system. If malnutrition during pregnancy were eliminated as a global public health problem by 2030, we could reduce warfare by 35%.
  • davidgarcia27 - Hypothetically speaking, if malnutrition caused world war, then having enough boron in your diet could prevent it. ;)
  • Campbell_Carol - Boron used to be a crucial mineral for our diets, but as wars raged across the globe, it’s use in fertilizers and pesticides changed. The result: we got so good at producing food that we lost an early warning system against malnutrition—a major reason for world war. We need boron now more than ever! Boron used to be a key factor in agriculture and infrastructure construction around the world- until it was banned because of its link with nuclear warfare. Recently though, countries have been lifting their bans on boron trade as evidence has accumulated that Boron may play a key role in combating global childhood hunger and preventing World War III.

  • One of the fundamental properties of the element of boron is the ability to reduce/prevent radiation. It does this by reducing exposure which is further done by blocking or absorbing the gamma rays and neutrons coming from that radiation. Moreover, it has similar properties to silicon, which makes it a better choice for using it as a neutron absorbers in almost all nuclear plants around the world.

  • drLisatorres - It is interesting to see how time has changed and is changing rapidly and with every new invention coming every second, it does raises few eyebrows as to how much effective boron is in controlling radiation.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - It would surely help to save so many lives every second around the world, thanks to the constant ongoing advancements in science and technology!!
  • Campbell_Carol - It also acts as an “undercover agent” where it helps in treating diseases like cancer and during the process it effectively kills the tumor and corrects and binds the DNA structure together and further prevents cell multiplication. I found this from an article called “borates today”.

  • We heard about some and not the most kinds of varieties of glass. Tempered glass, bullet-proof glass, these are some which we have heard about in movies and pretty much know about them, but have you ever heard about “borosilicate glass”, a type of glass made from using boron?

    It was relatively present for some decades around but, still it is relatively new and not many know about it. It is actually that type of glass that is meant to be extremely resistant to chemical corrosion and frequent thermal shocks and you can basically can’t break it! It is so so hard.

    You can read more about this interesting kind of invention about the new species of glass in this website.

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - This surely would help so many of our mums and wives seriously, who always worry about the food sticking to the pans and other utensils! A really great invention.
  • Campbell_Carol - Moreover, it is even more stronger than the tempered glass! So, don’t worry, the next time you are “trying” to break something made out of borosilicate glass!

  • We all have a love and hate relationship with vegetables. When we like something, we often want to have it on spot and we would have it like immature children who have tried something for the very first time. At the same time, when we hate something, say a cauliflower, we would not even want it, neither at our plates, nor we even want to look at it! My point is if we want to stay healthy and life a better life, we should consume all the necessary nutrients, because if we casually give something a miss, we are going to suffer in the end.

    The element that we should consume is boron. It is an element that many may not know so much about, but it plays an important role in keeping us all fit and healthy. It helps to maintain the proper function of our brain and the nervous system, it also helps to keep our teeths and bones strong and healthy.

    You can give this website https://borates.today/boron-natural-foods/ a read to understand the benefits and the other roles boron plays to keep us safe and fit from various diseases and it does so much more!

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - We should also consume them for reasons like if we are feeling work-drained, too sluggish and are unable to focus on our work and with low-boron diets, can lessen our cognitive function as well as reduced muscle power and strength.
  • Campbell_Carol - I think I should discuss about this with my mom someday and ask her if she could include it as part of my diet from now on!

  • Not many are aware about this amazing fact that boron is extremely vital for coral reefs which are found deep beneath the oceans. This is because of the fact that it helps to maintain the overall p H levels in the ocean floors. It also helps to prevent unnecessary growth of certain algaes that can block the sunlight and prevent the process of photosynthesis.

    It also acts as a natural filtration system for the oceans, seawaters and even your own domestic fish tanks!

  • Platinum is an excellent catalyst for catalysis due to its ability to form bonds with hydrocarbons by covalent interactions. Boron can enhance the catalytic performance of supported platinum in dehydrogenative and metathesis reactions, extending active surface area while also increasing reactivity through promotion at lower concentrations than many other promoters that do not work as well on their own
    Boron-based materials are useful because they're more efficient when used simultaneously alongside other chemical species such as oxygen or noble gases such as helium which enables them to regulate temperature during a process without affecting hydrogen evolution rate (HER) – this means we could use less energy!
