Boron trichloride is a starting material for the production of elemental boron. It has a high reactivity. It has been used as a soldering flux for alloys of aluminium, iron, zinc, tungsten, and monel. It is also used in the refining of aluminium, magnesium, zinc, and copper alloys to remove nitrides, carbides, and oxides from molten metal. BCl3 - BORON TRICHLORIDE. YOU'LL FIND HERE. Provided is a method for producing boron trichloride capable of efficiently producing boron trichloride by suppressing the generation of byproducts resulting from water by sufficiently removing water from a reaction system. hydrolysis trichloride Prior art date 1992-10-02 Legal status (The legal status is an assumption and is not a legal conclusion.

Properties of boron trichloride: Colorless gas. 4 BF 3 + 3 H 2 O → 3 HBF 4 + B(OH) 3 Properties: Reacts with alkalis, hydrogen fluoride... ALL REACTIONS. Commercially, boron trichloride is prepared by the reaction of boron carbide with chlorine in a borate melt. It is hydrolyzed in damp air and water. This reaction can also be done with dry B4C in a fluidized-bed reactor using a transition-metal halide as a catalyst. Boron trichloride is a starting material for the production of elemental boron. Uses. Boron trifluoride reacts with water to give boric acid and fluoroboric acid. Contamination of BCl3 with COCl2 from the chlorination of carbon oxides is a serious problem in BCl3 manufacturing. Obtaining Boron trichloride BCl3. Google has not performed a legal analysis and makes no representation as to the accuracy of the status listed.) p- Nitroanisole served to separate boron trichloride from hydrogen ... the hydrolysis of diboron tetrachloride, is converted into boron mon- oxide, (BO) x , by dehydration at 220° C (52). Easily converted to other compounds of boron. It is also used in the refining of aluminium, magnesium, zinc, and copper alloys to remove nitrides, carbides, and oxides from molten metal. Hydrolysis. Reacts with alkalis, hydrogen fluoride. chloride and boron trichloride impurities by complex formation. The reaction commences with the formation of the aquo adduct, H 2 O−BF 3, which then loses HF that gives fluoroboric acid with boron trifluoride.
