The Jadar lithium borate
discovery in Serbia is estimated at 135.7 million tonnes with a weighted average concentration of 1.86% of lithium oxide, which represents one of the largest lithium deposits in the world.
The study of the composition and concentration dependence of the low-frequency light scattering spectra of the borate
glasses [13, 14] has shown that both the type of the alkali metal cation and the concentration of modifier oxide strongly affect the spectral properties of the Boson peak (intensity and Boson peak position) (see, e.g., Fig.
Another approach to providing sufficient borate
to a bridge timber is to drill holes in the member before treatment and fill the holes with solid or powdered preservative.
It also attracts interest as model compound for the preparation of poly(methylenetriphenyl borates
The synthesis procedure of magnesium borates
is given in Figure 1.
The samples of potassium borate
and Cu-doped potassium borate
glass were prepared by a melt quenching technique.
are also known for their flame-retarding properties.
Previous laboratory tests have shown that without borate
the chemicals available on the early Earth fail to build ribose.
James Mack Gerstley, a mining executive, founded the mine in 1923; the local people then called the mine Gerstley's borate
. Gerstley's company, Pacific Coast Borax, merged with US Potash Company, which became US Borax and Chemical Company.

Charmax flame retardants and smoke suppressants include proprietary Charmax LS complexes used in low-smoke polymer compositions for wire and cable, Charmax FRs used as antimony oxide replacements, an ultrafine ammonium octamolybdate, zinc staunates, and zinc borates
for halogenated and nonhalogenated polymers.
Among their topics are the combined fire retardant action of phosphonated structures and clay dispersion in epoxy resin, borates
as fire retardants in halogen-free polymers, fire-resistant flexible foams, and smoke toxicity in automotive materials.
