What is Boron B? Boron A chemical element having the symbol B as well as an atomic # 5.
The boron nitride is the lightest element within the boron family. It has three valence electrons and can form covalent bond to create compounds like boric acid, sodium borate and superhard crystals of both boron carbide or boron.

Boron and its uses
Both crystalline and boron dioxide are both hard. While the former can be used in making cutting tools and drill bit, the latter is useful for creating artificial gems.

Boron is often called “vitamin to metal materials”. When mixed with small amounts of boron, it can make stainless steel. It is stronger and has superior mechanical properties. A few parts of million of boron can improve the conductivity in copper and aluminum.

Ceramics made of metal Boride are used in the manufacture and repair of rocket nozzles, high-temperature bearings, high-temperature electrodes, as well as electrical contacts.

The atomic energy industry uses simple boron as a neutron absorber. Boron fluoride, which is made from boron and aluminum alloys to form neutron shielding material, is used in making counters for nuclear reactors. The space industry can use borane as a rocket fuel, as well as triethylboron to power rocket engines.

The Ndfeb magnet material can be used to create computer disk drives, motors, office automation equipment and video cameras, recorders, speakers, magnetic resonance imaging system for medical purposes, and other devices.

Boron carbonide or Boron nitride may be used to make ceramics. They are also used in the aerospace and automotive industries. As a fire retardant and bleaching agent, fiber insulation materials made from zinc borate are also suitable.

Boron plays an important role in plant growth, flowering, and fruiting. Without boron, it will make it difficult to form leguminous, or rhizobia. Flax, hemp, alfalfa, and other crops won’t grow well. A proper intake can lower blood lipid, inflammation and anticoagulation as well as anti-tumor. This is especially true for prostate cancer.

Boron is divided into two types: crystalline boron or amorphous.

Differential between Crystalline Boron & Amorphous Boron
Crystalline Boron
Crystalline boron, a soft, dark and shiny form of quasi-metal, is fragile. Amorphous Boron is brown powder.

The crystal boron color is black and has a similar hardness to diamond. It’s commonly used as a replacement for diamond in the manufacture of cutting tools. While it does not conduct electricity well, its conductivity decreases as temperature increases, which is a marked difference to that of a metallic conductor.
The crystalline boron remains stable at room temperatures and cannot react with fluorine. At high temperatures, it reacts with sulfur, chlorine, fluorine, nitrogen, oxygen and other nonmetallic elements.

Amorphous Boron
Amorphous Boron is an active metal element that slowly reacts to oxygen in order to produce non-integral boreides.
An important material for energy, amorphous Boron powder can be used as a solid fuel in composite solid propulsion. Boron is nearly three times more calorific than carbon. Boron also has twice the amount of aluminum, twice as much magnesium and almost twice as many calories than hydrocarbon fuels. Boron is slightly more dense than aluminum. This nonmetallic energy source should have the greatest calorific values by volume. Amorphous boron’s low ignition temperature is due to its large surface area and irregular form.
