General description

Anhydride can be obtained by heating boric acid at temperatures higher than 160oC.1


Reducing boron anhydride in the presence of sodium yields amorphous boron. Whereas reducing in the presence of aluminum at high temperatures affords crystalline boron. 1

Glassy carbon electrode modified with boron oxide nanoparticles supported on multiwall carbon nanotubes was obtained via a facile approach. The as-prepared modified electrode exhibits excellent electrocatalytic activity toward the redox of glucose in pH 7.0 phosphate buffer solution. The electrochemical...

A facile strategy based on the reaction of urea and boric acid is developed for the synthesis of toxicity-free BCNO nanocrystals containing carbon impurities and which exhibit efficient multi-color fluorescence under both single-photon and two-photon excitation.

Quaternary Ag(2)O-CaO-Bi(2)O(3)-B(2)O(3) glasses and glassceramics are investigated with regard to release behaviour and local structure. The dissolution behaviour in water and physiological serum shows that the cations are released rapidly or gradually and points out a multi-step process, generally characterised...

Using density functional theory based calculations, we have systematically studied the equilibrium geometries, relative stabilities, and electronic and magnetic properties of Fe and Mn atoms interacting with a varying number of BO(2) moieties. These clusters are found to exhibit hyperhalogen...

The structural properties of the glass matrix 40SiO(2)·30Na(2)O·1Al(2)O(3)·(29-x)B(2)O(3)·xFe(2)O(3) (mol%), 0.0≤x≤29.0 were studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD), differential thermal analysis (DTA) and Raman and infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). XRD demonstrated Fe(3)O(4) crystal formation for Fe(2)O(3) concentrations of 29.0 mol%. DTA showed that...
