Metabolite Identification
Common NameBoric acid (H3BO3)
DescriptionBoric acid (H3BO3), also known as H3BO3 or [b(OH)3], belongs to the class of inorganic compounds known as miscellaneous borates. These are inorganic compounds in which the largest metallic oxoanion is borate, to which either no atom or a non metal atom is bonded. Boric acid (H3BO3) exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. Boric acid (H3BO3) is found, on average, in the highest concentration within pomegranates (Punica granatum). Boric acid (H3BO3) has also been detected, but not quantified in, a few different foods, such as figs (Ficus carica), french plantains (Musa X paradisiaca), and redcurrants (Ribes rubrum). This could make boric acid (H3bo3) a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on Boric acid (H3BO3).
