Synthesis of Magnesium Borate (Mg2B2O5) Whisker by Flux Method

Abstract:

Article Preview

Magnesium borate (Mg2B2O5) whisker was successfully synthesized by high temperature flux method using Magnesium chloride, boric acid, sodium hydroxide and sodium chloride as raw materials.The as-prepared product was characterized by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy(SEM), Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) and X-Ray Photoelectron Spectrometry (XPS). The results showed that the as-prepared sample had triclinic structure and consisted of whisker-like particles with an average diameter about 1.25 μm and length up to 40μm. XPS results confirmed that the molar ratio of each atom agreed with the stoichiometric composition of Mg2B2O5. The growth mechanism was briefly discussed.
