The total boron (BT) is the sum of boron species in a solution. In the environment these species usually include boric acid and borate, for example:
Additional recommended knowledge
BT = [H2BO3−] + [H3BO3]
BT is the total boron concentration
Total boron is an important quantity when determining alkalinity due to borate's contribution to a solution's acid neutraling capacity. Total boron is a conservative element in seawater, and can thus be calculated by simply knowing the salinity.
