The chapter describes boron chemistry in aqueous solutions. The physicochemical properties of boron as a chemical element, boron distribution in the Earth's lithosphere/hydrosphere, and the pathways of boron entering the aqueous environmental are discussed. The data on boron content in surface waters, underground waters, and seawater are presented, and the distribution of boron compounds and their concentrations in aqueous solutions at different pH are described. The chemistry of boron-containing species in aqueous solutions is analyzed in detail. Finally, the current regulations for boron content in drinking water as well as analytical techniques for boron quantification in water are presented.
