About the book

Boron is a chemical element with three valence electrons that can be considered as intermediate properties between metals and non-metals. Doping/integration of boron atom into other atoms provides new wonder materials such as Boron Nitride, Borophene, Boron Carbide, etc. with unique physical, chemical, and electrical properties. Based on the Scopus database, research on boron-based materials is still growing every year, from 3,099 documents in 2000 to 8,943 documents in 2021; the total number of papers exceeding 167,316. Therefore, boron-based materials have become one of the active and promising materials for many real-world applications.

The main object of this book will focus on providing an overview of the research and developments of boron-based materials such as Boron Nitride, Borophene, Boron carbide, etc. The contents of this book will cover all aspects of boron-based materials including theoretical backgrounds of structure and properties, computer simulation, synthesis techniques, device fabrication, characterizations, and the current state-of-the-art applications.
