The thermal emission properties of borides of some Group IV-VI metals in the form of compact specimens obtained by a powder metallurgy method have been studied in the 1300–2100‡C range. A correlation between the work function of the transition metal borides and certain of the physical properties of these compounds has been established. The principles involved in the change in the physical properties are explained in terms of the structural peculiarities of transition-metal borides.
