 An international team of researchers including scientists at the Carnegie Institution has discovered a new chemical compound that consists of a single element"•boron. Chemical compounds are conventionally defined as substances consist of two or more elements, but the researchers found that a high pressure and temperature pure boron can assume two distinct forms that bond together to create a novel 'compound' called boron boride.Because of its low mass, high strength, and response...

New phase of elemental boron discoveredZurich/New York, January 29, 2009. An ETH Zurich researcher has developed a computational method for predicting the structure of materials. He used it to solve the structure of a newly synthesized form of pure boron that displays some unusual physical properties and brings a surprise: it is partially ionic.The new structure can be viewed as a NaCl-type structure, with anionic and cationic positions occupied by two different clusters of boron atoms (B12...

By Brinton, William F Evans, Eric; Blewett, Craig Boron (B) is a trace element essential to crop growth in small soil concentrations (0.2-1.5ppm), yet may produce plant toxicity symptoms readily as the amount in the soil solution increases over 2ppm. Boron is present in significant amounts in recycled materials such as municipal solid waste (MSW) and coal fly ash, and therefore composts containing these ingredients may potentially exceed agronomic B levels, especially when used at heavy...

By Deva, A De, S K; Jha, B K It is well known that dissolved nitrogen in ferrite seriously impairs the formability of hot rolled unalloyed steel.1-3 Boron being a strong nitride former, combines aggressively with dissolved nitrogen in steel, and thereby improves the forming properties. Further, atomic ratio of boron to nitrogen (B/N) plays an important role in influencing the microstructure and properties3,4 of low carbon steel. Whenever excess boron is present in solution in austenite, it...

Colemanite (Ca2B6O11·5H2O) 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.
