Introduction to Aluminium Diboride AlB2 powder Aluminum diboride Or Aluminum Boride, Aluminium B2 This inorganic compound has the chemical name AlB2. It is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula AlB2. It’s a gray-red solid that is insoluble in water, at both room temperature (and pressure). The surface gloss of the material is lost when it’s heated. It stabilizes in cold dilute acids and then decomposes quickly in hot hydrochloric or nitric acids.
Aluminum diboride This is made from a mixture of fine powdered aluminum and boron, and then reacting with heat. Aluminum boride is one of the two compounds made of aluminum and/or boron (the other being AlB12).
The reaction of aluminum boride with acid or hydrogen can produce dangerous gases. Aluminum boride can react with hydrochloric Acid to release borane, and aluminum chloride.

Structures made of aluminum diboride AlB2
The architecture of aluminum boride Similar to the structure of metal interdides, it is dependent mainly on both aluminum’s crystal structure and on their valence relation. AlB2 and AlB4 are aluminum’s borides. AlB2 is a diboride made from two elemental compounds above 600. It’s a layer structure that Al atoms directly overlap. A, A and B fill the triangle column created by Al atoms direct overlap. The boron layers are located between these two aluminum layers. The graphite-like structure of the boron layers is very similar. In a hexagonal network, the boron molecules are interconnected. Every B atom lies 0.173nm apart from all three other B atoms. Additionally, six Al Atoms are connected with B. They occupy the apex portion of the triangular column. Dilute hydrochloric acids can dissolve AlB2 to make a reductive solution, which may include HB(OH)+. AlB2 cannot be dissolved in dilute sulfuric acids, but is soluble in the nitric. AlB2 was able to decompose AlB12 at 920.

The physicochemical and application properties of aluminum diboride powder AlB2
AlB2 single-crystal exhibits metallic conductivity parallel to the hexagonal basis plane. Boron, aluminum composite aluminum made with boron or protective coating of boron. The volume content for boron fiber ranges from 45% to 55%. The specific gravity of boron fiber is low and it has excellent mechanical properties. The composite is unidirectionally reinforced with boron and aluminum and has a longitudinal strength of 1.2 to1.7GPa. Elastic modulus and longitudinal tensile strengths vary depending on process and materials. Longitudinal specific elastic modulus, specific strengths, and material dependencies are 35 and 34 respectively for titanium alloy duralumin or alloy steel. It is resistant to fatigue and has high strength below 400.
The technique has been successfully used on fan blades in turbojet engines as well structural parts for aviation, aerospace and artificial satellites. For manufacturing plate and profile parts, hot pressing diffusion bonds is employed. Continuous casting is also an option to produce different profile types.
Aluminum Boride can be used for ceramics, in nuclear energy, in refractory and other applications.
