Crucible-Free Preparation of Transition-Metal Borides: HfB2

Crucible-Free Preparation of Transition-Metal Borides: HfB2
Horst Borrmann, Anne Henschel, Michael Binnewies, Yuri Grin, Marcus Schmidt
The manufacture of metal borides, especially without immixtures of oxygen or nitrogen, is a known problem in the preparation of intermetallic phases. The proof-of-principle for the innovative, crucible-free synthesis of single-phase borides at relatively moderate temperatures by reaction of a metal wire heated by an electrical current with a gaseous boron halide was achieved for hafnium diboride, a material with one of the highest decomposition temperatures. More information can be found in the Communication by Yu. Grin et al. (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201703181).
