Scientists work towards oxidation-resistant, ultrahigh melting point nanolaminated borides

By April Gocha / June 6, 2016

Researchers from Drexel University (Philadelphia, Pa.), Linkoping University in Sweden, and Imperial College London think that they can make borides better—by giving the material a protective layer of aluminum, the scientists have developed the world’s first corrosion-resistant boride.
