Description

Boric Acid (also known as hydrogen borate) is a commonly used reagent in molecular biology for preparation of buffers. Boric acid shows some antibacterial and antifungal activity.

 

Applications

• Industrial: monofilament fiberglass manufacturing (textile fiberglass), production of LCD screens
• Capillary and gel electrophoresis: pH buffer
• Used in treatment of yeast infections and cold sores[1]
• Anti-septic agent, highly diluted solution can be used as eye wash
• Insecticide: acts as poison affecting metabolism

USE
Boric Acid is a commonly used reagent in molecular biology for the preparation of buffers such as Tris Borate EDTA (TBE; sc-296650) and has applications in capillary and gel electrophoresis. Boric acid in equilibrium with its conjugate base the borate ion is widely used (in the concentration range 50 - 100 ppm boron equivalents). Boric acid is a weak acid, with pKa (the pH at which buffering is strongest because the free acid and borate ion are in equal concentrations) of 9.24 in pure water at 25 °C. Boric Acid is also noted in some studies to potentially have antibacterial and antifungal applications. This compound has also been employed in a multitude of applictions, from weatherproofing fabrics to hardening steel.
