Overview of aluminum boride AlB2 powder:
Aluminum boride (AlB2) is a binary compound formed by aluminum and boron. It is a red solid under normal temperature and pressure. It loses its surface gloss when heated. It is stable in cold dilute acid, and decomposes in hot hydrochloric acid and nitric acid. It is obtained by mixing fine powders of aluminum and boron after heating and reacting.
It is one of two compounds of aluminum and boron, and the other is AlB12, which is commonly referred to as aluminum boride. AlB12 is a black and shiny monoclinic crystal with a specific gravity of 2.55 (18°C). It is insoluble in water, acid, and alkali. It is decomposed in hot nitric acid and is obtained by melting boron trioxide, sulfur and aluminum together. The single crystal of AlB2 is parallel to the hexagon of the matrix.
Aluminum boride is considered a hazardous substance because it reacts with acid and hydrogen to produce toxic gases. For example, it reacts with hydrochloric acid to release borane and aluminum chloride.
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. The AlB 2 single crystal exhibits metal conductivity along an axis parallel to the hexagonal plane of the substrate.
The crystal structure of AlB2 is usually used to describe the prototype structure of intermetallic compounds. There are many structure types in the AlB2 structure family.
Aluminum boride is an ionic compound with a hexagonal crystal structure. Aluminum boride with an absolute temperature of 40K (equivalent to -233°C) will be transformed into a superconductor. Its actual working temperature is 20~30K. To reach this temperature, we can use liquid neon gas, liquid or closed-cycle refrigerators to complete the cooling. Compared with the current industry that uses liquid helium to cool niobium alloys (4K), these methods are simpler and more economical. Once the magnetic field is doped with carbon or other impurities, magnesium diboride, or current is passed, the ability to maintain superconductivity is as much as that of niobium alloys, or even better.
