Solubility
Soluble in water (1 gram in 18ml cold or 4ml boiling water). Solubility in water is increased by addition of HCl, citric or tartaric acidIt is fairly soluble in boiling water but less in cold water. Soluble in lower alcohols, acetone and moderately soluble in pyridine.

Grade Specifications

Maximum level of impurities: Insoluble in methanol 0.005%, Nonvolatile with methanol 0.5%, Cl 0.001%, PO4 0.001%, SO4 0.01%, Ca 0.005%, Heavy Metals (as Pb) 0.001%, Fe 0.001%

Applications

In hardening steel, preservatives, manufacturing of cements, porcelain, enamels, glass, borates, artificial gems, in nickeling baths, painting, photographyIt is a precursor material for other boron compounds. A dilute water solution of boric acid is usually employed as a mild antiseptic and eyewash. Boric acid is too employed in leather manufacture, electroplating, and cosmetics.

Notes

It should be stored separately from strong bases and at room temperature. Boric acid can be crystallized from an acidified borax solution.
