Description

Borax, also known as sodium boratesodium tetraborate, or disodium tetraborate, is an important boron compound, a  mineral, and a salt of boric acid. Powdered borax is white, consisting of soft colorless crystals that dissolve in water. A number of closely related minerals or chemical compounds that differ in their crystal water content are referred to as borax, but the word is usually used to refer to the octahydrate. Commercially sold borax is partially dehydrated.

Borax is a component of many detergents, cosmetics and enamel glazes. It is used to make buffer solutions in biochemistry, as a fire retardant, as an anti-fungal compound, in the manufacture of fiberglass, as a flux in metallurgy, neutron-capture shields for radioactive sources, a texturing agent in cooking, as a precursor for other boron compounds, and along with its inverse, boric acid, is useful as an insecticide.

In artisanal gold mining, borax is sometimes used as part of a process (as a flux) meant to eliminate the need for toxic mercury in the gold extraction process, although it cannot directly replace mercury. Borax was reportedly used by gold miners in parts of the Philippines in the 1900s.

Formula: Na₂[B₄O₅(OH)₄]·8H₂O

The best-known use for borax is as a cleaner, but you can find the ingredient in many other household products, including:
  • Specialty toothpastes and mouthwashes.
  • Cosmetics such as lotions, skin creams, moisturizers, sunscreen, and acne care products.
  • Paint and ceramic glaze.
  • Herbicides.
