Info about Boron
Boron is a metalloid. In a pure form, Boron is shiny and is a solid. It is slightly lighter than aluminum and is hard and brittle. It is barely reactive under normal conditions and is semi-conductive of electricity. If it is put under a high enough pressure, it can become a super-conductor, which means it would conduct electricity very well. Boron can be found in borates from borax and colemanite and as an acid in some volcanic spring waters. It can be used to treat arthritis and certain types of glass. Boron has 11 isotopes ranging from B7-B17. Some common compounds involving boron include: borates, boron oxide, diborane, and zinc borate.
