"A great number of these videos, particularly popular among children under 10 in the sample, involve so-called 'slime', a malleable and sticky substance made by mixing sodium borate and water.
All you need to do is mix Borax, or sodium borate, and soda crystals dissolved in water with ordinary washing powder and water in a large tub.
I did a science fair project called "Super Slime: What is the Best Contact Solution for Making the Most Stretchy Slime?" I learned that if you want to make a good stretchy slime, you want to use a contact lens solution that has some boric acid (it's also called sodium borate) in it.
These substitutes include borax and sodium borate; they could pose a threat to the market's growth.
Assay for ACE inhibitory activity: ACE inhibitory activity of different treated sausage samples was measured according to the method of Cushman and Cheung,(1971) with the modifications by Arihara et al.,(2001).The sample solution (15 uL) was mixed with 125 uL of 100 mmol L-1 sodium borate buffer (pH 8.3) containing 7.6 mmol L-1 of Hip-His-Leu and 608 mmol L-1 of NaCl.
It was shown that the chemical structure of the lithium and sodium borate glasses and, therefore, the distribution of the superstructural units in these glasses, differ significantly (see, e.g., Fig.
To 5 mg of human insulin in 2.70 ml of 20 mM sodium borate buffer (pH 12.0) containing 25% acetonitrile was added 0.625 ml of a solution of N- succinimidyl acetate (40 mM stock solution in 100% acetonitrile) and the mixture, in which the final concentration of the reagent was 3 mM and of acetonitrile 30.5%, was incubated at 25 oC for 10 min.
An example water solution consists of 69-81 wt% water, 1-20 wt% ammonium polyphosphate, 4-5 wt% sodium borate, 4-5 wt% boric acid, and 0.8-1 wt% hydrogen peroxide.
Stock solution of sodium borate buffer of 0.010 molar was prepared in distilled water at pH value of 7.52.
Extensive physical and chemical changes (cross-linking, interchain linkages) are possible by treating the starches with urea and sodium borate. These additives can change the pure starch into a highly branched long chain biopolymer of improved viscosity, tacking, and solution properties [4].
