The technique of laser ablation in liquids is applied to produce of Boron-containing nanoparticles from ablation of a Fe2B bulk target enriched in B isotope. Laser ablation of the target in liquid isopropanol results in partial disproportionation to free Fe and Boron while nanoparticles of Fe2B are also presented. Nanoparticles are magnetic and can be collected using a permanent magnet. Average size of nanoparticles is of 15 nm. The content of B in generated nanoparticles amounts to 76,9…
