Product and Safety/Handling

You can rely on Honeywell to deliver a quality boron trifluoride (BF3) product.  Honeywell BF3 comes in the three grades and complexes:
  • BF3 gas
  • BF3 diethyl ether complex
  • BF3 methanol complex
BF3 is a non-flammable compressed gas packaged and shipped in cylinders under high pressure. It is one of the strongest Lewis acids, which are also known as electron pair acceptors. In gas form, it reacts with chemicals containing oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, and other electron pair donors to form addition or coordination compounds.

Market & Applications
  • Petrochemical specialties
  • Pharmaceutical molecules
  • Electronics applications
It's important to note that while boron trifluoride has several applications, its use must be handled with care due to its reactivity and potential hazards. Users should follow proper safety protocols and guidelines when working with this compound.

BF3 Complexes

Complexed forms of BF3 are typically liquids or solids that can be easier to manage than the high-pressure gas form of BF3. It is best to use BF3 in a complexed form so that it can be released under preferred conditions. These complexes can provide unique catalytic effects or change the characteristics of reaction products. Custom complexes can be made upon request.
