1 Kg Boric Acid Powder H3BO3
Boric acid, also called hydrogen borate, boracic acid, and orthoboric acid is a weak,
monobasic Lewis acid of boron. However, some of its behaviour towards some chemical reactions
suggest it to be tribasic acid in the Brønsted sense as well. Boric acid is often used as an antiseptic,
insecticide, flame retardant, neutron absorber, or precursor to other chemical compounds. It has the chemical
formula H3BO3 (sometimes written B(OH)3), and exists in the form of colorless crystals or a white powder that
dissolves in water. When occurring as a mineral, it is called sassolite.
What is the structure of h3bo3?
Molecular and crystal structure
The three oxygen atoms form a trigonal planar geometry around the boron. The B-O bond length is 136 pm and the O-H is 97 pm. The molecular point group is C3h. Crystalline boric acid consists of layers of B(OH)3 molecules held together by hydrogen bonds of length 272 pm.
