Dehydrated magnesium borates are well-known metal borates that have many chemical formulas such as, [Mg.sub.2][B.sub.2][O.sub.5] (suanite), MgB3[B.sub.2]O6 (kotoite), and Mg[B.sub.4]O7 [1].
"K" code represents "kotoite" and [S.sup.1] and [S.sup.2] represent "suanite" minerals that have different lattice structures.
At 800[degrees]C reaction time, major magnesium borate phase was seen as kotoite, "K." At this temperature and 30 minutes of reaction time the ratio of 1: 1 had the greatest score among the other ratios.
And it is seen from the experimental results the [B.sub.2][O.sub.3] contents were similar to the theoretical contents of the kotoite and suanite [B.sub.2][O.sub.3] contents which are 36.54 and 46.34%, respectively.

From the experiments, the formation of kotoite [[Mg.sub.3][(B[O.sub.3]).sub.2]], two types of suanite [[Mg.sub.2]([B.sub.2][O.sub.5])], and four different formulated dehydrated magnesium borates [[Mg.sub.2]([B.sub.2][O.sub.5]), Mg[B.sub.4][O.sub.7], [Mg.sub.2][B.sub.2][O.sub.5], MgO[([B.sub.2][O.sub.3]).sub.2]] were seen.
