    Producing Method

    Tungsten boride can be sintered at 1200 ~ 1300 ℃ in vacuum or argon with 2mol of tungsten and 5mol of boron powder.

    Reduction of tungsten trioxide with boron will also produce tungsten pentaboride, but at the same time it will produce tungsten monoboride as a by-product.
