Boric acid - a colorless white powder or granules layered lattice.
In nature Boric acid H3BO3 occurs as mineral sassolina and thermal waters and natural brines from which it was extracted with a mixture of alcohols or polyols, or sorb organic and inorganic sorbents. Upon receipt of H3BO3 their natural borates H2SO4 decomposed at 100 ° C and the insoluble residue was filtered off; the filtrate is cooled to 15 ° C, the crystals that precipitated H3BO3 separated in centrifuges, and dried at a temperature not higher than 100 ° C.
Boric acid (orthoboric acid) is widely used
• in the industry in the production of enamels, glass, special purpose, glass, fiberglass and glass, cement, etc..
• the manufacture of detergents and cosmetics, flame retardants,
• as a disinfectant and preservative, corrosion inhibitor, photographic reagent as micronutrient fertilizers,
• The pro-ve other boron compounds
• in laboratory practice Boric acid was used to prepare buffer solutions.
• medical Boric acid is used as an antiseptic (antimicrobial) agent for rinsing and washings used in the manufacture of ointments, pastes, dusting powders, boron alcohol included in the contraceptives.
