Boron trifluoride (BF3) is a pungent, toxic, colorless gas that is known for being a significantly versatile component of other boron compounds and is grouped as a Lewis acid. BF3 is often referred to as “electron deficient” as a result of its exothermic reactivity that occurs when it comes into contact with Lewis bases. Boron trifluoride uses There are several boron trifluoride uses, the most prevalent being as a reagent in organic chemistry, most frequently as a Lewis Acid. Other uses of boron trifluoride are its use in neuron detectors and ionization chambers and other equipment used to observe radiation levels in the atmosphere, along with its frequent application in fumigation. In the specialty gas industry, boron trifluoride is most commonly purchased to be utilized in semiconductor fabrication and p-type diffusion in ion and silicon implantation. However, it can be utilized in a myriad of markets including chemical, environmental, food, petrochemical, and biotechnology.
