Abstract:

The Fifth International Symposium on Boron and Borides was held at the University of Bordeaux, Talence, France, on 8-11 September, 1975. The conference emphasized the relation of crystal structure and chemical bonding to properties and applications but other major topics included reaction kinetics in the preparation of amorphous boron, vibration and optical spectra, band structure, and magnetic and semiconducting properties. In the area of applications the main topics included the surface treatment of steel for wear resistance, the hardness of boron and borides, and the protection of boron fibers in metallic composite materials.
