Production Method of Nickel Boride Ni2B powder ：
The electrochemical method is a common method for producing nickel boride. The principle of this method is to generate nickel boride on the cathode by electrolysis of nickel ion and borate ion solution. The specific production steps are as follows:
(1) Prepare an electrolyte containing nickel and borate ions: dissolve the nickel salt and borate in an appropriate solvent, such as water, ethanol, or ethylene glycol.
(2) The electrolyte is sealed in the electrolytic cell, and appropriate electrolytes and additives are added to maintain the required pH value and current density.
(3) The electrolytic cell is electrolyzed, generating nickel boride on the cathode.
(4) The generated nickel boride is separated from the electrolyte by centrifugation, washing, and drying.
(5) Finally, the required nickel boride product is prepared by grinding, pressing, forming, or sintering.
The electrochemical method has higher production efficiency and lower energy consumption but requires the use of a large number of electrolytes and electrodes, so the cost is higher. In addition, the electrolysis process may also produce waste, which has a certain impact on the environment.
The thermal chemical process is another method of producing nickel boride. The method is to directly synthesize nickel boride by chemical reaction under high temperature and high pressure. The specific production steps are as follows:
(1) Nickel powder and boron powder are mixed to make a nickel-boron preform with a certain shape and size.
(2) Put the prefabricated body into the furnace for a high-temperature synthesis reaction. Under high temperature and pressure conditions, nickel and boron undergo a chemical reaction to form nickel boride.
(3) The required nickel boride product is prepared by grinding, pressing, forming, or sintering.
The thermal-chemical method has lower production costs and less waste generation. Still, it requires high-temperature and high-pressure equipment and requires higher equipment maintenance and safety requirements. In addition, the reaction conditions of the thermal-chemical method are relatively complex, and it is necessary to precisely control temperature, pressure, and other parameters to obtain high-purity and high-quality nickel boride products.
