–        Boron is atomic number 5 on Periodic Table of Elements. Black metalloid that exists in many stable covalently bonded polymorphs: crystalline is very hard – 2nd hardest compound, comparable to diamond which is a form of carbon. High melting point above 2000 degrees Celsius, once heated better at conducting electricity, some forms are flammable. Difficult to isolate, it can be highly concentrated by water as a compound since it is water soluble. Created in outer space from nuclear reactions when cosmic rays hit particles and during Supernova events when stars finally blow up. Found also in meteoroids and cosmic dust. On Earth found as a compound in crust, borate minerals, volcanic hot springs and gemstones such as tourmaline and blue diamond. Used in fiberglass and structural materials for buildings, sports equipment, high strength tape, cooking and laboratory glass (does not expand when heated), ceramics, cleaners, insecticide, abrasives, nuclear energy, spectroscopy, adhesives, rocket fuel, radiation shields, aerospace materials such as structural shielding, military use such as tank armour and bulletproof vests, coating tools, semiconductors. Magnets: MRI machines, powerful drive motors, computer hard drives, dvd players, cell phones, speakers, wood preservatives, water treatment – antiseptic/ fungal/ viral, eye antiseptic, cleans snakes, fungal/ cancer drugs, natural antibiotic. Good at absorbing neutrons so used in nuclear industries – cancer treatment, reactor shutdown systems, cooling rods. Small amounts in mammals, low toxicity to humans –  may possibly support bone health but biological role not yet known. Found in the stem cells of all plants, an essential plant nutrient but requires a specific range in soil otherwise detrimental to the plant. Name comes from Arabic ‘buraq’ which means light or white – for borax that was used as a fluxing agent to solder gold and silver. United States and Turkey are main producers. Boron glazes have been used by many cultures, in China as early as AD 300; 18th century Florentines used it medically as the sedative ‘sal sedativum’; can transmit portions of infrared light; amorphous (randomly bound) boron is used on pyrotechnic safety flares and fireworks which burn bright green; may possibly treat arthritis. Boron + carbon + nitrogen = super hard and heat resistant compound called ‘heterodiamond’. RNA (ribonucleic acid) is stabilized by Boron making it important for our evolution.
