Abstract : A carbon dioxide laser is used to irradiate a laser cell containing gaseous boron trichloride + hydrogen at room temperature (25 C) to produce diborane. The product is sufficiently stable (no loss of concentration over a period of 72 hours) to permit separating diborane and recycling the remaining boron trichloride to obtain high efficiency production of diborane.
