Abstract:

A comprehensive review of the literature was made to assist in providing background information needed for future work concerning boride materials. The materials reviewed included solid bodies of TiB2, ZrB2, HfB2, VB2, NbB2, TaB2, CrB2 and ThB4. This compilation presents information on synthesis, properties, and applications of the selected boride compounds, including selected abstracts and articles. This documentary search, by showing many gaps and wide scatter where information is available, demonstrates the need for the development of authoritative scientific information on borides applicable to future technological requirements.
