Latest Boron Stories
DUBLIN, February 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6cj78v/boron_trifluoride) has announced the addition of the
Graphene, a sheet of carbon one atom thick, may soon have a new nanomaterial partner, “borophene.”
Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville have pioneered a new technique for forming a two-dimensional, single-atom sheet of two different materials with a seamless boundary.
Colemanite (Ca2B6O11Â·5H2O) is a borate mineral found in evaporite deposits. Colemanite is a secondary mineral that forms when borax is deposited, and then regularly covered with boron containing water. The boron remains after the water evaporates, and the boron and borax eventually form other minerals as for example Colemanite. It was named after William T. Coleman (1824-1893), owner of the mine where it was first found.
