Boron powder is a black or dark brown powder, which can react with fluorine at room temperature and will not be corroded by alkali and hydrofluoric acid aqueous solutions. Boron powder is also called amorphous boron. Boron has a high mass calorific value and volume calorific value. It is a light brown to gray-black powder with relatively active chemical properties, but it is relatively stable at room temperature and will be oxidized when the temperature reaches 300 degrees Celsius.
Boron powder is commonly used in metal smelting, electronic product manufacturing, ceramic manufacturing, chemical industry and nuclear industry, etc. The specific functions of boron nitride are as follows:
1. Boron powder can be used to make various boron-containing compounds, used as raw materials for the production of boron fibers, and important raw materials for the production of high-purity boron halide;
2. Boron powder is added in the form of a compound as a gas scavenger for the smelting of special alloy steel or molten steel;
3. Boron powder is used as high-energy fuel for rocket spacecraft,
4. Boron powder is used as the ignition pole of the ignition tube in the electronics industry;
5. Boron powder replaces precious or scarce metals;
6. Boron powder is used as a protective material for the atomic energy industry and the control rod in the atomic reactor;
7.Boron powder also can be used as a catalyst for organic chemical reactions.
Amorphous Boron Powder preparation
There are two main techniques to obtain pure boron powder: via-gas and magnesiothermic reaction. The first technique uses hydrogen gas to reduce gaseous boron trichloride (BCl3), whereas the latter uses a combination of heat and magnesium to reduce the boron trioxide (B2O3) to elemental boron.
