Borik Acid (Borax) analysis

Boric Acid Analysis
Boric Acid Analysis

Borax is a salt of boric acid is actually known as sodium borate. Sodium borate is white in powder and crystalline form. Soluble in water and glycerin, but insoluble in alcohol. Borax begins to melt at 75 and loses crystal water. The 200 degree melts into a glassy mass called boiling and borax glass. Sodium borate is obtained by evaporating and crystallizing salty lake waters. Borax is obtained by reacting boric acid with anhydrous sodium carbonate in the laboratory.

Borax is used to remove water hardness and bleach laundry. It is also used in the production of textile dyes, as antifreeze to delay freezing and in printing. It is also used as a herbicide in agriculture. Boron, used in small amounts, is important for the growth of some plant types. Borax is added to the soil for more efficient soil. Borax is also used as an analytical marker in the laboratory. Borax is the most widely used type of boron.

Boric acid is a chemical compound in the form of the oxyacid of the boron element. Boric acid is obtained by reacting the colemanite mineral with sulfuric acid. Boric acid is tasteless, odorless, stable in air and in the form of white crystals. Today, boric acid has been used in the production of mobile phones and LCD televisions. In the laboratory, boron halides are hydrolyzed to obtain boric acid. Commercial boric acid is obtained by adding chlorine or sulfuric acid to the borax solution.

In agriculture, boric acid is used in the production of fertilizers and in the manufacture of pesticides for the removal of unwanted weeds.

In the laboratories, boric acid (borax) determination studies are carried out within the scope of chemical tests. During these studies, the relevant standards issued by domestic and foreign organizations are complied with.
