Hydrothermal Synthesis of MgBO2(OH) Nanomaterials
Magnesium borate hydroxide (MgBO2(OH) ) were synthesized using magnesium nitrate hexahydrate(MgNO3.6H2O) and borax decahydrate(Na2B4O7.10H2O) by hydrothermal route. Effect of reaction temperature , reaction time and water's volume on the composition , structure , and crystal morphology of the products were investigated, and the products were characterized by XRD and SEM. The results indicated that all of the products were szaibelyite with the reaction condition investigated, and crystal morphology could be tailored via varying the reaction condition.
