Abstract Elemental boron was produced by the fused salt electrolysis of potassium fluoborate. A study was made of anode and cathode materials of construction, particularly the effect of various grades of graphite as anode material. The effect of additives to the electrolyte (including potassium, aluminum, calcium, vanadium, nickel, Inconel, water, and sulfate ion) on boron yield and purity was investigated. Finally, a method of passivating elemental boron was developed.
