What is Boron? Boron Boron is either a silvery-gray or black solid. The earth’s crust contains a mere 0.001% of boron. Crystal boron has a black color, is harder than diamond and is brittle. Boron was named Boron. Its name is derived Arabic, and the original meaning of “flux”. This shows that ancient Arabs were aware that borax was able to melt metals oxides and used as a welding flux.
Boron – Preparation
The sodium metaborate first obtained is by decomposing the magnesium borate solution with concentrated alkali, then crystallizing NaBO2 solution in strong alkali, making the solution dissolve in water, increasing the concentration, and finally adjusting the acidity by adding CO2. Adjust the acidity of the sodium tetraborate solution with sulfuric to precipitate crystals of boric acids with low solubility. After heating, boric acid dehydrates to produce borontrioxide. Then, after drying, crude-boron is obtained through reducing B2O3 by magnesium or aluminium. The crude boron undergoes three different treatments: hydrochloric, sodium hydroxide and hydrogen fluoride. This results in brown amorphous, 95-98% pure boron.
By hydrogen reduction, you can make monomeric, pure boron. You pass boron and hydrogen through the wire of tantalum and then heat it to 1500K.
You can also obtain boron by heating magnesium or aluminum powder and reducing boron dioxide.

Use of boron for industrial purposes
Boron, a chemical raw-material mineral, has a variety of uses. It is used to make borax, boric acids, boron and other compounds. It is widely used in metallurgy as well as building materials, electrical appliances and chemicals, light-weight wool, the nuclear sector, medicine, agriculture and other industries. Raw materials are important. Boron is used in more than 300 products. Glass, ceramics, detergents, and fertilizers for agriculture are some of the major uses.
Elemental Boron is used in a variety of applications, including as a good reducing, oxidizing, and brominating agents, blending materials for organic synthesis, high voltage, high frequency electricity, plasma arc insulators, and transmission windows of radar.
Boron The boron element is found in trace amounts of alloys, and when combined with aluminum or plastic, can be used to shield neutrons. In reactors, boron is used as an alloy control rod. Composite materials are made from boron fibre. Boron-containing additives improve sintering, which is important in the metal industry. The quality of ore can reduce the melting point and reduce the expansion. It also improves strength and hardness. Boron and its derivatives are also used in the metallurgical and steel industries as raw materials for boron-iron boron steel. The addition of titanium boride or lithium boride to building materials and heat-resistant alloys can produce these compounds. Borates, borides, and other borates are essential components in enamel, ceramics, glass, and ceramics. They can be used to improve the surface finish and gloss of a product.
Boric acid
Zinc borate may be used to create fireproof fibers. It’s a good fire retardant. It can also be used for bleaching or mordant dying. In fabric bleaching, sodium metaborate can be used. In the paper industry, boron compounds and paint desiccants can also be used.
Boron can be found as a trace in quartz. How to reduce as much boron in the purification process for high-purity, quartz sand becomes the key process. The presence boron lowers the melting point and decreases the number uses of the prepared crucible. This increases production costs of monocrystalline silica.
China has abundant boron-ore resources but boron-ore products cannot meet domestic construction needs. Domestic borax production was around 400,000 tons in 2007, imported boron-ore products were about 648.700 tons. This shows a high dependence on imports.
