Abstract : Magnesium diborate MgO:B2O3:nH2O was synthesized at 25C in solutions of the chlorides of sodium, potassium and magnesium in the presence of 3% boric acid and potassium hydroxide to a ratio B2O3:K2O=1. The noncrystalline sediment which first precipitates is converted over the course of several weeks to crystalline magnesium diborate. The infrared spectra of the borates were measured. (Author)
