General description

Boric acid is a weak monobasic acid, it accepts OH- ions, hence is a Lewis acid. In boric acid, B is sp2 hybridized, forming a planar triangle structure. The principal oxide of boron, B2O3, is obtained as a vitreous solid by dehydration of boric acid at red heat.

Application

Boric acid was used as a constituent in mineral sacrificial paste. 1 It has been used as a buffer in electrodeposition of nickel. 2

The human solute carrier (SLC26) family of anion transporters consists of 10 members (SLCA1-11, SLCA10 being a pseudogene) that encode membrane proteins containing ~12 transmembrane (TM) segments with putative N-glycosylation sites (-NXS/T-) in extracellular loops and a COOH-terminal cytosolic STAS...

Boron, an essential micronutrient, is transported in roots of Arabidopsis thaliana mainly by two different types of transporters, BORs and NIPs (nodulin26-like intrinsic proteins). Both are plasma membrane localized, but have distinct transport properties and patterns of cell type-specific accumulation...

Electrodeposition from microemulsions using ionic liquids is revealed as a green method for synthesizing magnetic alloyed nanoparticles, avoiding the use of aggressive reducing agents. Microemulsions containing droplets of aqueous solution (electrolytic solution containing Pt(IV) and Co(II) ions) in an ionic...

Layered double oxide hollow spheres (LDO-HSs) were synthesized and employed as a dissolvable sorbent in dispersive solid-phase extraction (DSPE) to extract eleven United States Environmental Protection Agency's priority phenols from aqueous samples. With their higher specific surface area, LDO-HSs showed...
