  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron is a very light, versatile, and sustainable material that could theoretically be used to create a more energy-efficient form of fuel. However, there are still many challenges that need to be overcome before this type of fuel can become a reality. For example, researchers need to figure out how to efficiently store boron fuels and how to best distribute them. There is also still much research needed into the safety and efficacy of boron fuels.
  • smithjamess221 - There is a lot of excitement around boron fuel as a potential new superfuel. But there are still many unknowns about this type of fuel and whether it could ever be commercially viable.
  • drLisatorres - Boron fuel might seem like a promising alternative to traditional fuels, but there are a number of challenges that would need to be overcome before it could be put into widespread use. For example, boron is not very efficient at releasing energy compared to other fuels. It also has a high melting point, which makes storage and transportation more difficult.
  • andrewjackson6626 - There is no such thing as a new super fuel. All fuels are essentially the same, composed of molecules that release energy when combined with oxygen. The only thing that makes one feel better than another is how efficiently it can be used to generate power. And that efficiency depends on a number of factors, including the design of the engine and the purity of the fuel.

  • Boron is known to help control nuclear radiation through a process called "boron neutron capture" (BNC). In this process, a boron atom absorbs a neutron from an unstable nucleus, which then causes the nucleus to become stable. This can help to prevent the release of harmful radiation. https://borates.today/boron-and-chernobyl/

    Boron is also known to play an important role in human health. It helps keep our bones healthy and strong, and may also help protect against heart disease and cancer.

  • davidgarcia27 - In addition, boron can also help clean up nuclear spills and accidents.
  • George851 - Boron is able to help control nuclear radiation because it is a chemical element that can absorb neutrons. When it comes in contact with radiation, it helps to stabilize the radioactive material and prevent it from spreading.
  • jessicaallen33 - Boron is a naturally occurring element that has been found to help control nuclear radiation. There are a few ways that it does this: 1) By helping to stabilize the nuclear material, boron can help prevent it from breaking down and releasing radioactive particles into the environment. 2) By forming a barrier around the nuclear material, boron can help keep radioactive particles from escaping and spreading contamination. 3) By absorbing radiation, boron can help prevent it from damaging nearby cells and tissues. Overall, boron is a very important element in controlling and mitigating the effects of nuclear radiation.

  • People often identify boron with nuclear power plants in addition to uranium and plutonium, however there is another sort of radioactivity related with boron: cosmic ray radiation. It's one of various ways to keep radioactive material from spreading throughout a structure following a nuclear explosion. To prevent radioactive particles from impacting densely populated regions, scientists increase the amount of a type of particle known as boric acid near nuclear power plants. Neutron slowing stops nuclear fission from occuring quicker than it would ordinarily, preventing substantial quantities of energy from being released into the environment. https://borates.today/boron-protects-against-radiation/

  • Boron research in technological fields is usually focused on boron-10 isotopes, with the most important application being large-scale neutron radiography of piping systems. https://borates.today/boron-research-areas/. Borons are also used when lasers need to be cleaned or sterilized; they're used to pump up the laser's power by converting infrared light into excitation photons. The larger pumps can use liquid nitrogen but because liquid nitrogen doesn’t let enough energy escape, it has an increased risk for explosion up to 1 time per year versus around 50 times per year without liquid nitrogen.

  • Boron is the second-least abundant mineral in Earth's crust, after helium. It has several ecological applications, including its use as a plant micronutrient. The discussion about boron's potential to mitigate climate change comes down to how much of it can be safely added without significantly altering the acidity of rainfall or freshwater lakes. The European Union proposed that humans could consume up to 20mg per day before risking ecological changes - which would translate to an increase in an atmospheric concentration of less than 0.1%. https://borates.today/boron-and-climate-risk/

  • jessicaallen33 - Boron is capable of pulling three molecules of water vapor from the atmosphere, while human-produced bromine only has the capacity to pull one. If there are more boron particles in the upper atmosphere, then that excess water can either form more rain or it will drop back into the oceans. If too many boron particles are present, they could actually cause problems by not allowing enough water vapor to rise up out of the ocean and fill out clouds for precipitation at different levels of altitude. This would lead to a higher risk for drought in parts of Africa and South America who depend on monsoon seasons running smoothly due natural weather variability.

  • The corrosion resistance of Boron-nickel alloy is well known, but not much attention has been paid to the big picture. Findings show that boron alloys are 100% corrosion resistant in seawater and freshwater! Boron has low-density properties which allow it to sink quickly so the boron-coated metal does not come into contact with salt water. In addition, because of how corrosive seawater is the molecules on the surface of a metal ionize and lose electrons over time. The more positively charged ions present means more electricity from galvanic currents flows around the cathode instead of moving towards it as created by corrosion effects. https://borates.today/boron-nickel-anti-corrosion/

Studies have shown that it increases the yield and popularity as well as provides a cleaner taste than does use without borax. https://borates.today/boron-in-coffee/

  • davidgarcia27 - Coffee plants have been observed to absorb boron from rocks in the soil when there are insufficient levels available, which is then gathered into the leaves, accumulating weight through time due to respiration processes by protoplasm cells.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron deficiencies are known to aggravate conditions like frost damage on crops in severe winters when boron-rich precipitations are scarce.
  • George851 - Boron is an element that can be found in both plant ranks and within the ground itself. A number of plants, including coffee plants, use it for mitigation of adverse effects of climate conditions on their processes.

  • Boron is a naturally occurring element, but it does not occur in its elemental form; instead, it appears as an essential part of various minerals such as borax and colemanite. It can also be created during the pyrolysis (heating up) of organoboron compounds like tetraborane. It was first isolated from colemanite by Humphry Davy in 1808; this was about the time chemists had begun to realize how important isolating elements could be for predicting atomic weights. https://borates.today/boron-pharmaceutical-applications/

  • George851 - Boron chemistry has been a fast-developing field in the last century, and stands to provide us with many potentially revolutionary applications. The key to boron's success as a chemical agent is its ability to form long molecules, called polymers. These polymers have a unique bonding structure that makes them much stronger than those developed from other types of materials used for this purpose, such as carbon monotubes. Scientists have found that these bonds also transfer less heat from an applied force--meaning they can withstand higher temperatures before breaking or bursting open.
  • jessicaallen33 - The boron-containing compounds that have been well studied and that are isolated, soluble, and crystalline to the point where they belong to the chemical group metals include boracite [B6O3], borate [BO2] or water glass, ulexite [(NaCa)2B8O10], metaboric acid [HBO(OH)], metaborate [(NH4)HBO2] or potassium acetate.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - In December of 2017, researchers from the University of Sussex in England published a paper entitled "Safer Glasses with Boron". Their findings revealed that boron can be more than just an unforeseen and infrequent contaminant in glass. It can actually help to reinforce the glass and reduce its fragility.

  • Boron is an element that has 3 main purposes in cleaning products. It can remove odors, it can kill microorganisms, and it can reduce organic matter in a product. These three important properties make borax a very popular compound in household cleaners you'll often find at the store today. As for which product to buy, your best bet would be to look for products with multiple powerful natural additives like baking soda, lime juice powder, or vinegar that are known to have antibacterial properties without relying solely on borax. That way you're getting the good of both worlds - something that's more efficient but also less toxic. https://borates.today/boron-cleaning-products/

Mineral spirits seem to break down nail polish more easily than methyl alcohol. Lotions containing boron compounds should be used sparingly, and always washed off before bedtime. Don't use powdered cleaner around plants unless it's made specifically for plants. Otherwise, they may die or show damage.
  • George851 - The boron found in products such as Comet II is only an issue if ingested, not on the skin. Avoid using Borax with chlorine bleach on textiles because it may lead to yellow discoloration
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Borax is a natural cleaning agent and has antimicrobial properties to fight mold and mildew. Boron in the form of borax, aka sodium tetraborate, is one of the largest commercial deposits in world; it's found mostly in Chile. Sodium hydroxide may also be used as an alternative additive during soap-making to increase pH levels so soap can get more dirt out of clothes.

  • Refining oil is more of a challenge than simply finding and extracting it. After extraction, the oil needs to be mixed with chemicals that separate it into different fractions according to boiling point. These fractions include gasoline, naphtha (petroleum distillate), and lubricants and waxes (at more extreme temperatures). It's often cheaper for the refinery to buy crude oil than this mixture so companies will also need equipment that can transport these materials through pipelines or by ship. If you think about global crude production on an annual basis, we are talking about around 25 million barrels per day! https://borates.today/boron-oil-extraction/

  • George851 - For an oil spill to be addressed, it's usually broken down into sections depending on risk. For example, if it’s a high-risk area or fault line, the response will come first from clean up manufacturers accessing the effected areas to remove as much crude as possible. Second is usually mechanical equipment followed by personnel via vessels. To make matters worse, funding for these types of disasters is also dwindling because many companies are switching their dollars towards renewable energies rather than relying on infrastructures that won't exist forever anyway.
  • jessicaallen33 - To break up a heavier crude, you need to mix it with lighter fluid until the two commingle and form one pool on top of each other. If that heavy crude had been mixed with too much light crude in the space where they were stored before being loaded into tankers, then when it spills in open water you're unable to pump out all of one type of oil without upsetting the balance between them and allowing a second level to rise back up. This becomes a problem when there's only so much capacity at any given site for collecting all this drilling mud or when sites have reached capacity already.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - One challenge of recovering oil from an oil spill is the difficulty in extracting the heavier oils from the lighter oils.

  • Food security is an ongoing discussion. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, defines it as "when all people at all times have physical, social and economic access to sufficient safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs for a healthy life". It's important for this solution to tie into reasons why people might not have enough food. However, it would be unreasonable to only focus on one particular group because many factors lead to food insecurity whether that is due to lack of money or health problems, or other family obligations. https://borates.today/boron-developing-nations/

  • George851 - In the 1990s, one in every three people in the world starved to death. Now, we’ve got globally booming obesity and food insecurity. So what gives? You could pin it down to an efficient globalized civilization system with mechanized agriculture, the following problem: we produce more food than we need so too many farmers can't make enough money and then sell their crops at low prices. The result is that there's less money for research and development into agricultural technology or healthier "eatables."
  • jessicaallen33 - This vulnerability will increase with global warming as many crops can only thrive in specific regions or require specific environments so the damages caused by rising temperatures result in either scarce yields or quick spoilage of raw produce.
  • davidgarcia27 - High food insecurity is usually caused by high food prices, low access to land, lack of connections to markets or financial services, and environmental risks that cause unpredictable harvests - all things which are furthered by climate change.

  • Farmers have long believed that boron application in soil is important for the yields of crops, but until recently it has never been scientifically confirmed. New evidence has surfaced showing increased crop yields by adding boron to soil. The yield increase in corn following the addition of boron was over 50%, and in rice it was up to 82%. Borax (sodium tetraborate) is the compound most commonly used commercially because it poses no health hazards when applied to plants or eaten by humans. https://borates.today/boron-plants/

  • George851 - Studies show that excess boron can enhance food and feed production and offers an approach to mitigate climate change through increasing soil organic matter content and crop production. Although comparatively less is known about boronate compounds, interest is building because they offer a different method for mitigating climate change-related effects on crops by stimulating underground microbial activity (mycorrhizae).
  • jessicaallen33 - Boron deficiencies in plants effect the photosynthetic process and will hinder productivity. Boron deficiencies can be acute or chronic, with some studies indicating that more than 60% of the world's agricultural soils are deficient of boron.
  • davidgarcia27 - It has been scientifically demonstrated that increasing the concentration of boron in the soil by only 10 ppm boosts crop yields by over 20%. Allowing boron to act as a co-factor for enzymes involved with nitrogen fixation, improves the performance. Boron is composed of one less electron than carbon, so it can bond with carbon readily and form several important molecular structures including DNA.

  • Boron in pharma is usually used to treat diabetes, regulating blood sugar levels. There are many drugs that contain boron or boric acid. Generic versions of these drugs are available at lower prices than the branded versions of these drugs sold by big pharma companies. These generics are just as effective for most people with diabetes, but there may be some variations in terms of side effects and efficacy of treatment depending on factors like hormone levels or other individual chemical factors, so it's important to try out different brands until one becomes effective enough. https://borates.today/boron-pharmaceutical-applications/

  • If you want to solve food security in developing nations, it is wise to pay close attention to the following steps:
    - Promote better agriculture practices such as irrigating crops and using fertilizer.
    - Provide equal access to agricultural equipment and resources by increasing agriculture's share of the investment pie and boosting productivity through economies of scale. - Abandon prohibitive trade barriers which limit the importation of essentials like seed, fertilizers, pesticides. This should happen at a national level so as not to create inequalities between rich and poor countries or separate regions within these countries. Markets need access both ways if they are going to be able-liquid enough for all players engaged in food production. https://borates.today/boron-developing-nations/

  • George851 - I believe there are two major factors that contribute to bad food security in developing regions. The first is poverty and the second is integrated agricultural practices.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Microcredit is an excellent way for impoverished families to move out of poverty and build sustainable communities while benefitting from development assistance programs.

  • Boron is found in a variety of food sources, what with being naturally present in soil and plant tissues. You can therefore get it from parsley, apples, grapes, green beans, celery root, and from prunes or raisins. Bromelain enzyme supplements help increase the absorption of boron; meanwhile, most Americans are deficient in this essential trace mineral due to our squeaky-clean agricultural methods that remove most minerals (and dirt) before they reach the consumer's plate.

However, it would be hard to absorb enough boron through food sources alone - at 100mg per day, you'd have to consume about 6 ounces of cooked oatmeal every day for the rest of your life to get the benefits.

  • Borosilicate is much more resistant to thermal stress than soda lime glass, so if you are looking for max heating protection the borosilicate glass will last much longer. Also because it has a lower coefficient of expansion, in general store-bought kitchens use it over soda-lime when cooking to prevent breaking the kitchen goods during temperature fluctuations. More expensive cookware is made of cast iron but these can rust easily if not dried out well enough after each usage. When fully trained in culinary arts, chefs are taught how to properly clean their pans between uses with professional prowess. https://borates.today/boron-borosilicate-glass/

  • jessicaallen33 - Soda-lime is much cheaper than borosilicate so if you want to put your dishware through a dishwasher or wash them by hand, this would be a good option. Borosilicate dishes will need dry polishing with steel wool to remove stains and hard water spots if they are not being washed by hand with mild soap at least every six months.
  • George851 - The borosilicate is the thick grade that allows the dishware to be dishwasher-safe. The soda lime glass is lighter so it can have more bubbles in it, which are desirable for champagne glasses.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - The problem is that Soda Lime glass has an issues with thermal expansion. So, if you heat up a Soda Lime container, the hotter the water gets, the more it expands--the containment forces are reduced as volume increases. This issue is especially problematic in cooking applications where allowed for very different temperatures ranges on each end of your spectrum--so not only can it leak when hot if not sealed correctly, but also extreme changes in temperature can cause it to shatter through this thermal expansion thing

  • Schlesinger and Lehman continue to discuss its potential public role of “Savior of Civilization” and how the introduction of boron and hydrogen into fossil and nuclear fuel cycles would supply society with cheap, clean energy for centuries without any appreciable impact on the environment.

    although hydrogen dissociates in water at low concentrations, it becomes a potent oxidizing agent when boosted by an electric discharge or chemical catalyst such as boron(III) oxide - protium (1H) or lithium (7Li). As such, these elements can be introduced into power grids via high-temperature water-gas steam reforming fueled by conventional natural gas. https://borates.today/boron-clean-electricity/

  • George851 - It all comes down to amounts and levels. There is no question that boron can accumulate in the body and cause problems like the suppression of HPA axis "hormone related glands" (hypothalamus, pituitary, adrenal) or encourage growth of unwanted tissue like prostate (and it does all this at low doses), but not only there exist studies showing that it cures one type of MS (progressive MS), but even better than that - this specific type of MS could be proven to originate from boron’s insufficiency.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron is a very common element found peppered throughout the world. It's also safer to use than many other radioactive substances. Element boron generates toxic reactions in the body, so too much of it can be unhealthy for humans. However, adding small amounts to water at the initial stages of generating nuclear power reduces radioactivity. By recycling this process over and over again, it's possible to generate cheaper, cleaner energy that does not use coal or fossil fuels as input.
  • davidgarcia27 - It is true that boron does have a significant effect on the production of cheap and clean electricity, but I also want to put some perspective on this question. You would never know from our growing dependence on foreign fuels or carbon emissions data released by the EPA how close we were to producing enough energy domestically from wind power alone for 100% of our national grid's needs. In 2010, wind energy accounted for 59 GW (producing only 27% of US electricity demand). That amount will be way higher in 2020 due off-shore development continues at current rates.

We rely on these less-than-organic techniques because they're generally cheaper and more efficient to use. They allow for a better distribution of foods across a nation, even if the country has a large population or those who can't afford it as easily as those who can.

  • jessicaallen33 - Many variations are possible when using these two substances because they have so many functions depending on their circumstances. For example, wrinkle sheet boron nitride can be used for transistors in electronics.
  • George851 - The other form, that it can be produced with nitrogen instead of borons has nothing to do with its composition when created but how it's formed - when you evaporate gaseous boron onto a nanowire, the result is "Amorphous-walled BN."
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron nitride is found in two different conductive forms. When it's formed with boron ions, it's called "wrinkled-sheet" boron nitride.

  • Boron is a metalloid, having some properties of both metals and non-metals. The relative rarity of boron up to this point has not given it the benefit of being researched extensively. However, in recent decades there have been intense efforts to view boron more clearly under an electron microscope. The atomic number for boron is 5 while the mass number stands at 10. This signifies that it has one less proton than neutron which are the nuclei found leading to its classification as a metalloid. https://borates.today/boron-metalloid/

  • jessicaallen33 - Due to its inert and brittle properties, boron doesn't make the best conductor of electricity but has an interesting property-when heated, borax emits a blue color due to excitation from electrons.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - The melting point of boron is 630 degrees Celsius which makes it semi-solid at room temperature but molten in liquid nitrogen.
  • George851 - Boron is a metalloid that exists with one electron more than most elements. It is nonmetallic and sometimes it has the properties of an inert gas. Boron's molecular weight (11) is such that it can either dissolve into alkaline solutions or react with other strong oxidizing agents like fluorine, chlorine, and nitric oxide.

  • It's been theorized for some time, but the evidence is only now adding up. Time after time, additional research proves boron should be added to both our depleted soil and body supplements for a number of important reasons. Boron has a diverse range of functions for our bodies and many benefits.

    The foremost being that it aids in the digestive process by helping breakdown fatty foods and dietary fat into smaller molecules that have greater absorption rates which increases metabolism, reduces appetite, strengthens bones and reduces cholesterol levels.

    And topping off its list of amazing features is regulating blood sugar levels which decreases risk from diabetes! In short, boron helps with everything from stress reduction to good digestion. https://borates.today/boron-body-environment/

  • jessicaallen33 - The focus on macronutrients—carbohydrates, proteins and fats—has obscured discussions about micronutrients like boron that guard our bodies against chronic illnesses. Boron deficiency can lead to falsely normalized hormone levels and an increased incidence of inflammatory diseases such as many cancers, arthritis or acne.
  • davidgarcia27 - Recent research has added important elements to this discussion, including the link between fiber intake and inflammation which is one of the leading drivers of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes.

  • ABR is the only producer of boron in the U.S., and this is a great opportunity. Boron production through ABR has tripled, and this is an exceedingly rare mineral that shows promise in replacing overused resources like coal, steel, petroleum. At present, most boron mined for commerce comes from Turkey; but now with our new discoveries, we are opening up new markets to be explored -- which means more jobs for American workers too! Boron deposits are few and far between - there's less than 2 lbs per square mile of what most would call findable deposits of it on Earth. https://borates.today/abr-production-triples/

  • George851 - Boron is a trace mineral that's been proven to benefit your health. It aids in building strong bones and teeth, properly uses calcium and magnesium absorption, helps enzymes work more efficiently & may promote healthy pregnancies.
  • jessicaallen33 - Boron is one of the more essential elements for plant growth. It helps plants fix nitrogen in the compound nitrate, which makes up all their major macronutrients in terms of nitrogen content. The element also has profound impacts on human metabolism and health with respect to bone formation, hormonal regulation, blood sugar balance, and immune system function.
  • davidgarcia27 - I feel like if you are dieting or trying to make money in some form or fashion (given your interest) and your boron levels were really low (due to a lack of meat), then this might be something worth looking into if you want to maximize brain performance.

  • This is a large scale mining project in Alaska led by S-K Mineral Corporation to produce gold, copper, and zinc. It's located south of the Yukon River near the headwaters of two rivers that flow into Canada. It'll take between 3-4 years to complete the exploration and production phase at a cost estimated around $500 million dollars. Production is predicted to be restricted due to high grade ore deposits with an estimated 8 annual tonne capacity for gold alone. The expected cooper production will have 25 million pounds over 15 years with an average grade of 0.65%. Mining costs per ounce is projected at 60¢ USD per ounce or less thanks to private financing arrangements for this project.

The magnesium reserve estimate has been increased by 1000% due to recent trial extraction mined areas that have revealed huge untapped resources, which will last for centuries into the future.
  • jessicaallen33 - ABR will soon test the Exploration Target, which they initially designed in August 2021. See ASX release of 4 August 2002. Exploration Target may extend mine lives or scale further.
  • davidgarcia27 - Considering various reports, statements and studies (such as studies presented in 2013) Magnesium reserves seem likely to be higher than predicated. Moreover, the estimates only take into account magnesite deposits near Lake Superior while previous estimates included all possible deposits of magnetite and magnesia around the world.

  • Tungsten is excellent at rapidly corroding stainless steel when in contact. Boron improves the resistance of stainless steel to being corroded by tungsten. It does this because it changes the alloy microstructure to one that lowers reactivity). While there are many different factors affect corrosion rates in different environments, in general, corrosive media want the metal matrix in the ideal range for corrosion in order to speed up dissolution. Metals tend to have an "ideal" resistivity value where they are most sensitive...this is often reflected on their "pitting potential" value measured under certain...conditions) If a metal's resistivity is outside this ideal range, it offers significantly less protection against corrosive effects. https://borates.today/boron-nickel-anti-corrosion/

  • George851 - Boron additions enable stainless steels to stand up to corrosive environments that employ higher rates of chloride ion attack than expected because stagnant chlorides will be transformed into volatile chlorinated species before they have a chance to cause harm.
  • jessicaallen33 - One of the main effects that boron has on steel is that it will increase corrosion resistance, which means that free-flowing corrosive particles in the atmosphere have a much more difficult time oxidizing a boron-treated stainless steel. The fundamental reason for this is because boron protects the extremely thin layer of extremely hard oxide film left by welding or other heat treatments from being penetrated by atmospheric oxygen when in contact with air at elevated temperatures.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - The presence of boron in austenitic stainless steel has an important function in the resistance of the material to corrosion. Boron, along with nitrogen and sulphur, are responsible for making up what is called “the nonmetallic constituents” which are found at low levels.

  • Scientists all over the world are studying the properties of boron materials for applications such as battery electrodes, high-capacity and high-voltage cathodes and electrolytes. Some people call fluorine-doped lithium borate "Lithium Air." Potentials for this kind of material include a high cell voltage (up to 4 volts) and low reactivity with other chemicals. Lithium air batteries are an attractive option because they are long lasting, have low volatility, have low weight density in terms of per unit output. https://borates.today/boron-salts-batteries/

  • jessicaallen33 - Information about the importance of boron needed for a battery specifically is still being researched, but it's important to note that if a component of a lithium-ion battery has more back and forth reactions going on, there will be less energy available for delivery. So while we're not quite sure what role boron plays in the cellular reactions at this time, it does contribute to faster cell reactions - or slower 'transfers'. This might translate into an increased capacity for the storage of charge inside batteries with borate additives.
  • davidgarcia27 - If we want these batteries to form faster-- and they're expensive and in short supply -- maybe we should support the labs and the companies trying to build better recycling so that these products can be re-used and turned into new batteries.. I only wish they would tell us what actually happens when they break down.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Sodium Borate is an ionic salt made by combining boric acid with sodium hydroxide or ammonium hydroxide. It is used in some "non-flammable" dry cell batteries to provide the negative electrode so than it's usually combined with lead dioxide (PbO2) to make sure that no oxygen comes into contact with it. This salt can be mixed with other metals, such as zinc, cadmium, calcium or antimony oxide.

  • Niobium has many benefits over other options for lithium-ion augmentation that are being explored, including the fact it can be recycled. This is contrary to strategic metal skepticism of strategic metal mining companies in the United States, which...have done little to promote niobium battery technology or other uses of their metals.

    Working with Brazilian partners allows companies in the United States to get their hands on niobium without having to mine it themselves. The partnership between US and Brazilian corporations is likely one crucial component of any effort at strategy broadly aimed at promoting niobium use in primary batteries. As technologies increase demands for power sources, supply may not meet demand before using alternatives becomes necessary. https://borates.today/boron-mining/

It also helps to achieve social goals like gender equality, increased employment rates among youth, and more.
  • davidgarcia27 - This time it's about niobium, perhaps the best replacement material yet considered for use in lithium ion batteries. The main features of this silicon substitute are its low cost and environmentally friendly supply chain, for example.
  • George851 - The global battery market is currently dominated by a single rechargeable battery chemistry: the lithium-ion battery. Although it has been developed and improved significantly over recent decades, there are still drawbacks that hinder further developments - like an increase in energy density (range) or charging time (still too long).
  • jessicaallen33 - A study talks about a project that aims to develop a new technology that uses niobium, rather than cobalt, for producing lithium-ion batteries. The idea is to replace expensive and less flexible cobalt with cheaper and more pliable niobium. Niobium not only makes it feasible for electric cars to have a much larger driving range per charge but also extends the operational life of these type of batteries.-

  • Yes, with boron on Mars the set of chemicals necessary for life is complete. Manganese and iron were readily identified to be present in surface soil samples analysed by NASA's Spirit rover during its six year mission studying Gusev crater, an extinct volcano. Boron has also been detected by the Curiosity rover missions. This has given hope that the formation of Martian life would not require a co-evolutionary process with a host planet to survive, meaning that it could have formed solely from materials available on Mars itself. https://borates.today/boron-life-on-mars/

  • George851 - The presence of Martian ice caps in the past, plus hydrothermal systems discovered in 2012, suggest that Mars could have had environmental conditions appropriate for life in parts of its history. Analysis suggests that Mars might not be capable of supporting life now. Radioactive minerals cause long-term exposure to ground zero radiation which is lethal for most terrestrial organisms.
  • jessicaallen33 - It’s average temperature was surprisingly similar to that of Earth's, averaging 78°F (26°C) on earth surface equivalent (a planet like mars). Average temperatures ranged from 0°F (-18°C) at night on polar plains to 135°F (57°C ) on equatorial regions during the day; note that these are averages of all terrain above sea level rather than just land areas.
  • davidgarcia27 - Yes, early Mars would have supported the development of life. Due to its size and atmospheric composition, early Mars would not have had Earth-like seasons with cold seasons and hot seasons. The planet had more dust in its atmosphere than Earth does even today which trapped heat.

  • Graphite is the form of carbon, which has many gas pockets inside. These pockets are collections of atoms that can be stacked on top of each other in a particular order. The way the graphites are stacked defines what type they are, but it doesn't matter what kind they are because all carbon bonds have 4 chemical bonds. Boron helps to improve graphene by directing the electrons through one layer at a time up to two-thirds of their total travel before releasing them back into another layer. https://borates.today/boron-solutions-electronics/

  • There are many routes to decarbonization, but depending on the specific goals of the country, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. For example, Norway has chosen to become carbon neutral by 2050 by focusing their efforts into renewable energy. On the other hand, Germany has chosen to abolish coal power plants and replace them with wind and solar power stations. These two examples highlight how varied policies can be internationally in order to meet net-zero emissions targets.

  • George851 - The carbon tax is a controversial issue that has no clear-cut solution. it will always have the potential to increase costs and cause new environmental problems. It can also help cut down on climate change by raising prices for goods or services that emit high emissions into the atmosphere appropriately.

  • The first step of any boron-extraction process is separating the boron from a solution. There are a few ways to accomplish that, but whichever method is chosen, some boron must be removed from the solution as sludge. If the sludge is not designed to be reused, it will have to disposed of - if so, disposal techniques depend on whether this type of sludge contains any heavy metals or radioactive solids. https://borates.today/boron-risks-rewards/

  • George851 - In countries like Canada, the United States, you’ll need more sophisticated technology which takes time and money for extracting and mining boron.
  • davidgarcia27 - There are some risks associated with the mining of the boron. FBorax can be toxic if you ingest large quantities of it. Additionally, while strip mining does allow businesses to extract borate quickly, it often leads to environmental degradation. It is because the vegetation is usually cleared away before extraction begins. This can have negative effects on species that live nearby by leading them out of their natural habitat.

  • There is a lack of evidence in the literature about boron and general wellness, but it does play a role in several specific processes within the body. For example, it takes part in our metabolism of cholesterol into steroid hormones such as testosterone and estrogen. In this way, boron works with vitamin D to help regulate these hormones for proper hormonal balance. In addition, to helping metabolize cholesterol, boron also helps our bodies use folate by converting it to an active form that can be used by cells throughout the body. https://borates.today/boron-health-benefits/

The Institute of Medicine believes that at least 2 milligrams of boron per day should be taken indeed, their research shows a lack of the aforementioned mineral leads to hormonal changes including increased levels of cortisol which is connected with decreased fertility rates among women.
  • davidgarcia27 - Boron is a mineral that is naturally found in most fruits, vegetables and nuts. It's important for healthy bones because it helps the body form boron-containing compounds that help prevent conditions such as osteoporosis or arthritis. Without enough of these boron-containing compounds -- which include substances such as pectin, fat, and carbohydrate -- there would be brittle, fragile bones affected by vitally important nutrients like calcium or magnesium with difficulty taking on their functions. Consequently all the cells in our body depend on it to stay alive over time. Boron provides an essential link between whole grains with a low pH content and amino acids with a high pH content.
  • jessicaallen33 - Some people believe that boron could have a beneficial effect because it regulates how calcium is used by the body. However, there isn't enough evidence to show if this idea is valid and only small amounts of food contain boron. If you're concerned about your health and interested in exploring adding more boron into your diet, try these foods: barley (6mg), peach (1.9mg), figs ( 1.4 mg ), dates (0 mg). You should aim for 300-400 milligrams per day through food - drink plenty of water!

  • It is a good idea. Boron and graphene may be used together to develop new semiconductors that can constantly switch between different materials such as atomically thin metals and plastics. If we can find a way to change the material without interrupting the electrical current which enables the device to keep working, we could create devices where one side would constantly switch from metal to plastic or any other type of easily manipulated atomic-level material for use in computers and other electronics.

    Graphene can also be added to boron-based alloys to produce more durable, electrically conductive materials. The electrical properties of this material are tunable via tweaking the proportion of graphene that is added.

    You can give this website https://borates.today/graphene-boron/ a read to know if it’s worth combining the two strangest elements with each other or not.

  • Boron is an important material within the aerospace industry because it can be used as a protective lining for spacecraft. This substance also has the strength and chemical stability that makes it perfect for these levels of intense engineering.

    Boron's ability to protect materials from oxidation and erosion make it a great candidate for this use. It can't conduct electricity, making boron an excellent conductor for those who want to transport hazardous substances safely (like gases or chemicals). The moisture barrier properties of boron make it excellent as well at separating greases and oils from other substances like sugar or minerals, which can help clean up oil wells after an accident. Boron is also commonly found in fire extinguisher agent called ammonium borate.

It's commonly mixed with steel alloys, which are used to make many aerospace products, including aircraft parts and fuel lines. Boron is an element that doesn't oxidize or corrode spontaneously, meaning it can be exposed to atmosphere for an indefinite duration and still remain structurally sound and intact. Naturally, this makes boron a great material for use in aviation because it keeps our airplanes "hanging in there" longer before they need to land due to corrosion problems... making your flight more pleasant!

  • Boron is often seen as earth's missing element. It all started when chemists noticed that the periodic table was not complete. They found it in an unlikely place, borax (of all places!).

    Boron can be used to make other materials like concrete and brake pads for better running. You get all your essential nutrition from this little bit of boron. Not to get too technical, but it's a mineral that builds strong bones and teeth.

    Also, boron is a naturally occurring element that some people eat through vegetables grown in boron-rich soil or, where it can be taken up by plants or eaten directly with cruciferous vegetables like broccoli.
