Abstract

Lithium triborate (LiB3O5) was synthesized using different starting materials. The effect of these materials on the phase purity of LiB3O5 was investigated in each case. Identification and. characterizations of the products were carried out by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) and infrared (IR) analyses. The present study showed that the starting materials play an important role in the synthesis of lithium triborate with respect to phase impurity.
