- a salt or ester of boric acid
- A salt formed by the mixture of boric acid with a base or positive radical.
(n.) A salt created because of the combination of boric acid with a base or positive radical.
It is not volatile below a white heat, and consequently, if heated with salts of more volatile acids, it expels the acid forming oxide from such salts; for example, if potassium sulphate be heated with boron trioxide, sulphur trioxide is liberated and potassium borate formed.
