Name: Boric Acid
Chemical formula: H3BO3 or B (OH) 3
Density: 1.435 g / cm
Physical form: in the form of colorless crystals or white powder soluble in water
Boric acid, also called hydrogen borate, is also known as boric acid, boracic acid, or orthoboric acid, and is often used as an antiseptic, insecticide, flame retardant, neutron absorber, or precursor to other chemical compounds. .
Boric acid is a mild acid that is mostly used for disinfection and disinfection as well as to control the rate of nuclear fission in nuclear power plants.
Boric acid is available in two forms, colorless crystals or white powder, soluble in water.
Its chemical formula is H3BO3 or B (OH) 3.
Boric acid can be prepared from the reaction of borax with a mineral acid such as hydrochloric acid.
Na2B4O7 · 10H2O + 2 HCl → 4 B (OH) 3 [or H3BO3] + 2 NaCl + 5 H2O
It can also be prepared by hydrolysis of borthylaldehydes and deodorants.
B2H6 + 6 H2O → 2 B (OH) 3 + 6 H2
(BX3 + 3 H2O → B (OH) 3 + 3 HX (X = Cl, Br, I
Boric acid in chemical, agricultural, pharmaceutical, detergent, antifreeze, leather, coagulation of synthetic plastics, chemical fertilizers, insecticides and microbicides, and melting agent in welding industry and…. It has applications.
* It should be noted that when taking boric acid, pay attention to the appropriate amount and safety tips.
