What is aluminum boride?
Aluminum boride is a binary compound formed by aluminum and boron. It is a red solid under normal temperature and pressure. It loses its surface gloss when heated. It is stable in cold dilute acid and decomposes in hot hydrochloric acid and nitric acid. It is obtained by mixing fine powders of aluminum and boron after heating and reacting. It is one of two compounds of aluminum and boron; the other is AlB12, commonly called aluminum boride. AlB12 is a black and shiny monoclinic crystal with a specific gravity of 2.55 (18°C). It is insoluble in water, acid, and alkali. It decomposes in hot nitric acid and is obtained by melting boron trioxide, sulfur, and aluminum. Structurally, B atoms form a graphite-like sheet with Al atoms between them, which is very similar to the structure of magnesium diboride. The single crystal of AlB2 exhibits metallic conductivity on an axis parallel to the hexagonal plane of the substrate. Aluminum boride is hazardous because it reacts with acid and hydrogen to produce toxic gases. For example, it reacts with hydrochloric acid to release borane and aluminum chloride.
Overview of aluminum boride AlB2 powder
Aluminum boride (AlB2) is a binary compound formed by aluminum and boron. It is a red solid under normal temperature and pressure. The surface gloss will be lost when heated. It is stable in cold dilute acid and decomposes in hot hydrochloric acid and nitric acid. It is obtained by mixing fine powders of aluminum and boron and heating them. It is one of two compounds of aluminum and boron; the other is AlB12, commonly known as aluminum boride. AlB12 is a black shiny monoclinic crystal with a specific gravity of 2.55 (18°C). Insoluble in water, acid, and alkali. It decomposes in hot nitric acid and is obtained by melting boron trioxide, sulfur, and aluminum. The single crystal of AlB2 is parallel to the hexagon of the matrix. Aluminum boride is hazardous because it reacts with acid and hydrogen to produce toxic gases. For example, it reacts with hydrochloric acid to release borane and aluminum chloride.

The structure of aluminum diboride is similar to graphite flakes
The structure of aluminum diboride (AlB2) is similar to graphite flakes. There is an Al atom between the B atom and the B atom, which is very similar to the structure of magnesium diboride. The AlB2 single crystal exhibits metal conductivity along an axis parallel to the hexagonal plane of the substrate. Aluminum boride is hazardous because it reacts with acid and hydrogen to generate toxic gases. For example, it reacts with hydrochloric acid to release borane and aluminum chloride. The crystal structure of AlB2 is often used to describe the prototype structure of intermetallic compounds. There are many structure types in the AlB2 structure family.
