The boron element exhibits different binding characteristics and it can form crystal structures having a wide range of properties in 2-D and 3-D. They have unique properties such as high hardness, ultra-incompressibility, wear resistance, high melting point, superconductivity etc. Due to these broad property family, boron can be an alternative to carbon for some research areas. Thus, the experimental and theoretical studies focused on the boron and related compounds can generate impressive information for the possible applications.
