Called calcium hexaboride or calcium boride sometimes, it is a combination of calcium and bore with the chemical composition CaB6. This material is important due to its high electric conductivity, hardness and chemical stability. Purity: 99.5%
About Calcium Hexaboride CaB6 Powder:
Calcium hexaboride Oder Calcium boride A mixture of calcium and boren. Calcium boride chemical formulation It is also known as CaB6. It is important because of its high conductivity and hardness. Calcium boride powder This is a low-density, black and shiny powder that’s chemically inert. It is a cubic structure typical of six metalboride and has six boron atoms.
CaB6 A number of unique physical properties such as superconductivity or valence fluctuation have led to it being investigated. CaB6’s most notable property is its ferromagnetism. The unexpectedly high temperature (600K), and low magnetic moment are the reasons it occurs. High-temperature ferromagnetism results from the formation of the ferromagnetic phase in dilute electron gas. This linkage is to the presumed exitonic state found in calcium boride. These impurities could include nickel and iron, likely due to impurities present in the boron which was used to prepare it.
CaB6 Calcium boride The material is insoluble with H2O, MeOH and EtOH (methanol) but dissolves slowly when exposed to acids. Its microhardness, Knoop hardness, and Young modulus are all 27 GPa. Pure crystals have an electrical resistivity of more than 2*1010 O*m. CaB6 is an example of a semiconductor Energy gap at 1.0eV. Many CaB6 sample’s low semi-metallic conductivity can be explained by accidental doping caused by impurities or non-stoichiometry.

CaB6 Powder Calcium Hexaboride CaB6 Powder Product Performance:
Calcium Boride is known for its high melting point, high hardness and other characteristics. Both its chemical and physical properties are stable. The sub-micron CaB6 does not gain much weight when calcined under air conditions. It is also difficult to oxidize. CaB6 cannot be removed from hot hydrochloric or sulfuric acids. Technically, however, CaB6 may still dissolve in nitric and hydrochloric.

It is simple. Calcium Hexaboride CaB6 Powder Produced ?
The main reaction of industrial production is:
CaO +3 B2O3 +10 Mg-CaB6+10 MgO
CaB6 Powder can be produced in many other ways, including:

At 1000 degC, calcium and/or calcium oxide are directly reactive with boron
Ca + 6B -CaB6
In a vacuum around 1700°C (carbothermal reduce), Ca(OH)2 reacts against boron
Ca(OH)2 + 7B-CaB6 + BO(g)+ H2O(g)
Reaction of calcium carbonate with boron caride in vacuum over 1400 degC (Carbothermal reduce)
CaO, H3BO3, and Mg react to each other up to 1100degC
Low temperatures (500°C) are required for synthesis
CaCl2 + 6NaBH4-CaB6 + 2NaCl + 12H2 + 4Na
This has led to a low quality material.

CaB6 powder is then further reconstituted and purified using zone melting technology to make single crystals. It is possible to grow at a rate of about 30 cm/h and have crystal sizes around 1×10 cm.
By pyrolyzing diborane, (B2H6) onto calcium oxide (CaO), at 860-900degC and with Ni catalyst, single crystal CaB6 Nanowires can be made (diameter: 15-40nm; length: 1-10 microns).

Calcium Hexaboride CaB6 Pulse:

1. It is used as an additive containing boron for magnesium dolomite coal refractories, to resist oxidation and erosion and increase the thermal strength.
2. This is used as a deoxidizing or degassing agent to enhance conductivity and strength of highly conductive red-colored copper.
3. This material is new and prevents neutrons in nuclear industries.
4. This material is used as a semiconductor material for new spin electronic components at temperatures of 900K.
5. This is used to produce boron trichloride (BCl3) as well as amorphousboron.
6. This is used to produce high-purity metal borids (TiB2, ZrB2, FfB2, etc.). high-purity, boron alloys, such as Ni-B (Co-B), Cu-B (etc.). ).
7. It is used for the manufacture of a mix of catalyst-containing calcium boron (Ca3B2N4) & hexagonal Boron nitride (Ca3B2N4). Also, to create crystal cubic and high-performance boron.

Calcium Hexaboride Powder CaB6 Storage Conditions:
CaB6 powder performance and usage effects can be affected by damp reunion. CaB6 Powder should therefore be stored in vacuum packaging and in a cool dry place. CaB6 powder should not be exposed to stress.
