Overview of Aluminum Diboride AlB2 Powder
Aluminum boride (AlB2) is a binary compound formed from aluminum and boron. It is a red solid under normal temperature and pressure. It loses surface gloss when heated. Stable in cold dilute acid, decomposed in hot hydrochloric acid and nitric acid.
Aluminum boride (AlB2) is one of two compounds of aluminum and boron, the other being AlB12, commonly known as aluminum boride. AlB12 is a black glossy monoclinic crystal with a specific gravity of 2.55 (18°C). It does not dissolve water. The AlB2 single crystal is parallel to the hexagon of the substrate.
The structure of aluminum diboride (AlB2) is similar to that of 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. AlB2 single crystals exhibit metallic conductivity along an axis parallel to the hexagonal plane of the substrate.
Aluminum boride is considered a hazardous substance because it reacts with acids and hydrogen to produce toxic gases. For example, it reacts with hydrochloric acid to liberate borane and aluminum chloride.
The crystal structure of AlB2 is often used to describe the prototype structure of intermetallic compounds. There are various structural types in the AlB2 structural family.
Application of Aluminum Diboride AlB2 Powder
Aluminum boride is an ionic compound with a hexagonal crystal structure. Aluminum boride with an absolute temperature just above 40K (equivalent to -233°C) becomes a superconductor. Its actual working temperature is 20 ~ 30K. To achieve this temperature, we can use liquid neon, liquid or closed cycle refrigerators to accomplish cooling. These methods are simpler and more economical than the current industrial use of liquid helium to cool niobium alloys (4K). Once doped with carbon or other impurities, magnesium diboride retains superconductivity as good or better than niobium alloys in a magnetic field, or with an electric current flowing through it.
Aluminum boride is a random (or rhombic) white or pale yellow powder. Can be used as: non-toxic flame retardants, plastics, rubber, textiles, coatings, superconducting magnets, transmission lines, sensitive magnetic field detectors.
