Boric acid, also called hydrogen borate, boracic acid, and orthoboric acid is a weak, monobasic Lewis acid of boron. However, some of its behaviour towards some chemical reactions suggest it to be tribasic acid in the Brønsted sense as well. Boric acid granular powder is a white, odorless, and crystalline substance that is commonly used as an antiseptic, insecticide, and flame retardant. It is also used in the production of glass, ceramics, and fertilizers. Boric acid granular powder is effective in controlling pests such as cockroaches, ants, and termites, and is used in the treatment of yeast infections and other skin conditions. It is also used as a preservative in food and cosmetics. Its versatility and effectiveness make it a popular choice in various industries.
