Nickel Boride Ni2B Powder Properties
What is Nickel Boride Ni2B Powder ?
Nickel boride, chemical formula NiB, is an inorganic compound. Its structure may be Ni₂B₂, a brown crystalline powder thermally unstable and easily soluble in acids. At room temperature and pressure, nickel boride is a solid, and its crystal structure is a metal crystal. Its 7.7g/cm³ density has a high melting point and hardness, giving nickel boride potential for high-temperature applications and wear-resistant materials. 
In terms of the physical properties of nickel boride, it appears brown and can form black oxides in the air. Its solubility is 1.4g/100g water at room temperature, which allows it to exist in a certain concentration in an aqueous solution. Nickel boride is chemically active and can react with many elements and compounds. For example, it can react with water to form nickel hydroxide and hydrogen gas and with acid to form the corresponding salt. It can also react with many metals and quasi-metals to form various compounds, which vary in nature and structure, providing a wide range of possibilities for scientific research.

How is Nickel Boride Ni2B Powder produced?

Electrochemical method: 

The electrochemical method is a common method for producing nickel boride. The principle of this method is to generate nickel boride on the cathode by electrolysis of nickel ion and borate ion solution. The specific production steps are as follows: 

(1) Prepare an electrolyte containing nickel and borate ions: dissolve the nickel salt and borate in an appropriate solvent, such as water, ethanol, or ethylene glycol. 

(2) The electrolyte is sealed in the electrolytic cell, and appropriate electrolytes and additives are added to maintain the required pH value and current density. 

(3) The electrolytic cell is electrolyzed, generating nickel boride on the cathode. 

(4) The generated nickel boride is separated from the electrolyte by centrifugation, washing, and drying. 

(5) Finally, the required nickel boride product is prepared by grinding, pressing, forming, or sintering. 

The electrochemical method has higher production efficiency and lower energy consumption but requires the use of a large number of electrolytes and electrodes, so the cost is higher. In addition, the electrolysis process may also produce waste, which has a certain impact on the environment. 

Thermochemical method: 

The thermal chemical process is another method of producing nickel boride. The method is to directly synthesize nickel boride by chemical reaction under high temperature and high pressure. The specific production steps are as follows: 

(1) Nickel powder and boron powder are mixed to make a nickel-boron preform with a certain shape and size. 

(2) Put the prefabricated body into the furnace for a high-temperature synthesis reaction. Under high temperature and pressure conditions, nickel and boron undergo a chemical reaction to form nickel boride. 

(3) The required nickel boride product is prepared by grinding, pressing, forming, or sintering. 

The thermal-chemical method has lower production costs and less waste generation. Still, it requires high-temperature and high-pressure equipment and requires higher equipment maintenance and safety requirements. In addition, the reaction conditions of the thermal-chemical method are relatively complex, and it is necessary to precisely control temperature, pressure, and other parameters to obtain high-purity and high-quality nickel boride products.

Application of Nickel Boride Ni2B Powder:

High-temperature superconducting material: Nickel boride is a superconducting material; its critical superconductivity temperature is up to 252K, much higher than other metal borides. It makes nickel boride important in the research and application of high-temperature superconductors. By adding other elements to nickel boride or changing its structure, scientists are constantly trying to increase its critical superconducting temperature to achieve the popularization of high-temperature superconductivity technology in a wider range of applications. 

Electronic equipment: Nickel boride has low resistivity, high thermal conductivity, and remains stable at high temperatures, which makes it suitable for the production of high-temperature electronic equipment. For example, nickel boride can produce high-temperature transistors, integrated circuits, etc. In addition, due to its high hardness, it can also be used as a wear-resistant coating for electronic devices. 

Magnetic materials: Under certain conditions, nickel boride can show ferromagnetism or ferromagnetism, which makes it a potentially magnetic material. If this magnetism can be controlled and utilized, nickel boride may have application potential in information storage, electromagnetic shielding, etc. 

High strength, high hardness material: The high melting point and hardness of nickel boride make it a material with high strength and hardness. By alloying with other elements or compounds, nickel boride can further improve its strength and hardness, widely used in mechanical manufacturing, aerospace, and other fields. 

Catalyst: The active surface of nickel boride has good catalytic performance and can catalyze many organic reactions, such as hydrogenation, dehydrogenation, oxidation, etc. Therefore, nickel boride is often used as a catalyst or catalyst carrier. 

Chemical reaction medium: Because nickel boride has good stability and catalytic properties for chemical reactions, it is widely used in various chemical reactions, such as alkylation reactions, acylation reactions, hydrogenation reactions, etc. 

In the nuclear energy sector, nickel boride is used to prepare high-performance nuclear fuel, such as ceramic rods containing nickel boride. Such fuel rods can operate stably in water at high temperatures and pressures, improving the efficiency of nuclear reactions. 

Biomedical: Nickel boride also has some applications in the biomedical field. For example, due to its excellent biocompatibility and magnetic properties, nickel boride is used to prepare biomedical imaging reagents and sensors. In addition, nickel boride can be used as a drug carrier for drug delivery and treatment.
