diborane

[dī′bȯr‚ān]
(inorganic chemistry)
B2H6 A colorless, volatile compound that is soluble in ether; boiling point -92.5°C, melting point -165.5°C; can be used to produce pentaborane and decaborane, proposed for use as rocket fuels; also used to synthesize organic boron compounds.

The materials used as impurity sources during diffusion are as follows: diborane B2H6 gas [23] (diffusion from gas phase) and wafer of boron nitride [24] or borosilicate glass (diffusion from solid state).
The incorporation of boron atoms in graphene was obtained by different methods: exfoliation of boron-doped graphite [14], arc discharge of graphite electrodes in the presence of diborane [15], thermal decomposition of boron carbide powder [16], thermal annealing of graphene oxide in presence of boron oxide [9], hot filament CVD [17], and chemical vapor deposition (CVD) using solid or gas precursors [7,18-23].
The deposition was at 1000[degrees]C using dichlorosilane (DCS), and phosphine (P[H.sub.3]) and diborane ([B.sub.2][H.sub.6]) were used as the dopants.

Phosphine (PH3,1% in [H.sub.2]) and diborane ([B.sub.2][H.sub.6],1% in [H.sub.2]) were used as the dopant gases with flow rates ([[PHI].sub.dopant]) of 18 and 20 sccm, respectively, to prepare n-type and p-type microcrystalline Si layers, which were reported elsewhere [25, 27-29].
