Boron is probably a prebiotic element with special importance in the so-called "sugars world". Boron is not present on Earth in its elemental form. It is found only in compounds, e.g., borax, boric acid, kernite, ulexite, colemanite and other borates.

Journal of the American Chemical Society, 135(4), 1201-1204 (2013-01-16)
Two kinds of boron and nitrogen co-doped carbon nanotubes (CNTs) dominated by bonded or separated B and N are intentionally prepared, which present distinct oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) performances. The experimental and theoretical results indicate that the bonded case cannot
Jian-Yong Liu et al.

A silicon(IV) phthalocyanine with two axial p-phenylene-linked boron dipyrromethene and monostyryl boron dipyrromethene moieties has been prepared. The resulting pentad absorbs strongly in most of the UV-visible region and serves as an artificial photosynthetic antenna-reaction centre model.

Excess accumulation of lipids and oxidative stress in the liver contribute to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). We hypothesized that Pinus densiflora Sieb. et Zucc. (PSZ) can protect against NAFLD by regulating lipid accumulation and oxidative stress in the liver.
