Overview of Aluminum Diboride Powder
AlB2 (or AlB2) is a binary mixture made of aluminum and boron. It is a red solid at normal pressure and temperature. It loses its glossy surface when heated. It is stable when it is in cold dilute acid. However, it will decompose in hot hydrochloric or nitric acid. Mixing fine powders of aluminum or boron and heating them after reacting.
It is one among two aluminum and boron compounds. The other is AlB12 which is often referred to as aluminum boreide. AlB12, a black and shiny monoclinic cristal with a specific gravity of 2.55 (18degC), is also known as aluminum boride. It is insoluble when it comes into contact with acid, water, and alkali. It is formed by melting aluminum, sulfur and boron trioxide. AlB2 has a single crystal that is parallel to the hexagonal structure of the matrix.
Aluminum Boride is a dangerous substance as it reacts to acid and hydrogen to make toxic gases. To release borane, and aluminum chloride, it reacts to hydrochloric acid.
AlB2 (alluminium diboride) has a structure that is very similar to graphite flakes. It is found between the B and B atoms of aluminum diboride (AlB2), which is very similar with the structure in magnesium diboride. AlB 2 single crystal shows metal conductivity along an angle parallel to the hexagonal plan of the substrate.
The AlB2 crystal structure is used to describe intermetallic compound prototype structures. There are many structures in the AlB2 family.
