Keywords: aluminum borate, whiskers, habit of crystals, porous ceramics, composite materials.


An overview of various technologies for the synthesis of aluminum borate and a diagram of the state of the Al2O3 - B2O3 system are presented. The synthesis parameters and compositions of the initial components are presented. The habit of its crystals depends on the methods of preparation. The unique properties of aluminum borate are considered depending on the purpose of obtaining the final product. Properties of the obtained aluminum borate are given, its structure is studied using a wide range of research methods. Analysis of its properties made it possible to determine possible applications of materials based on porous ceramics in various industries.
