The application of boric acid in drug manufacturing

Pharmaceutical ingredients

Boric acid can react with other compounds to produce boron compounds with specific therapeutic effects, which are used to treat various diseases.


Drug delivery system

Boric acid can also be used as an auxiliary component in drug delivery systems to help drugs reach target tissues more effectively.


The application of boric acid in the cleaning and disinfection of medical equipment

Cleaning agents

As a cleaning agent, boric acid can effectively remove organic and inorganic substances from medical devices, laying the foundation for subsequent disinfection steps.



During the disinfection process of medical equipment, boric acid can kill bacteria and viruses that may remain on the equipment, ensuring its sterility.


Environmental and safety considerations for boric acid

During the use of boric acid, attention should be paid to its potential environmental and health risks. Reasonable use and strict safety measures are key to ensuring sustainable industrial development.



The application of boric acid in the pharmaceutical industry has greatly improved the performance and safety of medical products. With the progress of medical science and the increasing demand for new drugs, the potential of boric acid will be further explored, bringing more innovation and breakthroughs to the pharmaceutical industry.
