    to boron on semen quality was conducted on boars. Supplemental dietary boron enhanced sperm velocity characteristics and possibly normal morphology without influencing other measures of sperm production and semen quality (Korkmaz et al., 2011). The boron group’s abstinence time was found to be longer than that of the control group (Naghii and Saman, 1997a). Korkmaz et al., (2011) diagnosed oligozoospermia for one of the first two semen samples while the other had a diagnosis of asthenozoospermia;

  • What Is Boron?

    537 Words  | 3 Pages

    My element is Boron. Boron compounds such as borax have been known and used by ancient cultures for thousands of years. Boron was first partially isolated in 1808 by French chemists Joseph L. Gay-Lussac and L. J. Thénard and independently by Sir Humphry Davy in London. Davy first tried to produce Boron by electrolysis of boric acid, but was not satisfied with how the results turned out. In 1909, American chemist Ezekiel Weintraub was able to produce 99% pure Boron, by reducing Boron halides with hydrogen

  • The Synthesis And Processing Of Ceramics And Ceramic Composites Using Soft Materials

    2110 Words  | 9 Pages

    INTRODUCTION | 1 Polymer derived ceramics (PDC) were first introduced over thirty years ago, and are a fundamental material in high demand today. Over the years, these materials have been heavily studied to better understand how to manufacture them and determine their desired properties. Such materials include coatings, ceramic fivers, and ceramics containing properties that allow them to have high stability at high temperatures. Desired properties of PDC typically include high resistance to decomposition
