Boric Acid was first obtained by Wilhelm homberg from Borax. The presence of boric acid or its salts in seawater is significant, also in plants and in most fruits. Boric acid is freely available in volcanic areas in the grooves on the Earth. Boric acid is also a major component of minerals such as borax, borasite, and clume. Boric acid is soluble in boiling water. When it reaches temperatures above 170 ° C, it is dehydrated and methionine HBO2 is obtained. Metabolic acid is a solid white with a cubic crystalline structure and is the only acid that is soluble in water at normal temperature.
