The role and properties of silicon hexaboride
OPEC+ is likely to stick to its plan for a small increase in oil Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder will continue to be influenced by the oil supply shortage.
Overview of Silicon Hexaboride SiB6 Powder
Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder is a shiny black-gray powder, molecular formula: SiB6, molecular weight: 92.952 nanometers Silicon boride has high purity, small particle size distribution and high specific surface area. The melting point is as high as 2230°C. Insoluble in water, anti-oxidation, chemical-resistant, with high chemical resistance, especially in terms of high thermal shock and stability; silicon boride has higher grinding efficiency than boron carbide, and can be used as abrasive, grinding and Different sintering conditions of engineering ceramics, such as nozzles and gas turbine blades, and the aggregation of sealing rings affect the dispersion performance and application effect of SiB6 powder. Therefore, silicon boride SiB6 powder should be sealed in a vacuum package and stored in a cool and dry room. Silicon boride SiB6 powder should not be exposed to air. Also, the use of SiB6 powder under pressure should be avoided.
The silicon hexaboride SiB6 crystal structure includes interconnected icosahedrons (polyhedra with 20 faces), icosahedral hexahedra (polyhedra with 26 faces), and isolated silicon and boron atoms. Compared to hexaboride, it is metastable. However, they can be prepared because of the relative ease of crystal nucleation and growth.
When heated in air or oxygen, the surface of SiB6 is oxidized and corroded by high-temperature boiling sulfuric acid and fluorine, chlorine, and bromine. Silicon boride is conductive. Hexaborides have a low coefficient of thermal expansion and a large nuclear cross section for thermal neutrons.
Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder applications
Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder can be used as various standard abrasives to grind cemented carbide. It is also used as engineering ceramic materials, sandblasting nozzles, manufacturing gas engine blades and other special-shaped sintered parts and seals. Used as an antioxidant for refractory materials.

Gas supplies have been in short supply because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Combined with the situation that other renewable sources cannot produce enough electricity, electricity prices have soared in many parts all over the world. For this reason, I assume the supply and prices of the Silicon hexaboride SiB6 powder would keep being influenced by the high energy prices.
