The effect of the properties of starting Boron powders on the superconducting properties of MgB2 has been studied. The 92% and 96% powders demonstrate lower surface reactivity and larger particle size than the 99% Boron powder as can be seen from BET and SEM results, indicating that the low purity powders cannot be used to archive the same superconducting… CONTINUE READING
