Abstract

The crystal structure of .sodium tetraborate decahydrate (borax) solved
in 1956 by Morimoto 1 lead to the actual formula of this compound as
B40 5(0H)i · Na2 8 H 2 0. The anionic part of the structure is composed of
B,05(0H)4-polyions linked by hydrogen bonds, while the cationic set of the
chains is formed by sodium ions surrounded octahedrally with water molecules. These two types of chains are. connected through hydrogen bonds running throughout the crystal parallel to its z-axis.
