Title: Hydrothermal synthesis and characterization of the first mixed alkali borate-nitrate K{sub 3}Na[B{sub 6}O{sub 9}(OH){sub 3}]NO{sub 3}

The first mixed alkali borate-nitrate K{sub 3}Na[B{sub 6}O{sub 9}(OH){sub 3}]NO{sub 3} was synthesized under hydrothermal conditions from Na{sub 2}B{sub 4}O{sub 7}·10H{sub 2}O and K{sub 2}B{sub 4}O{sub 7}·4H{sub 2}O using KNO{sub 3} as a nitrate source. The compound crystallizes in the space group Pnnm (no. 58) with the lattice parameters a=1320.8(3), b=910.7(2), and c=1232.5(3) pm (Z=4). Isolated Sechserrings formed by BO{sub 4} and BO{sub 3} groups are linked through hydrogen bridges to form a three-dimensional network. - Graphical abstract: The first mixed alkali borate-nitrate K{sub 3}Na[B{sub 6}O{sub 9}(OH){sub 3}]NO{sub 3} was synthesized under hydrothermal conditions from Na{sub 2}B{sub 4}O{sub 7}·10H{sub 2}O and K{sub 2}B{sub 4}O{sub 7}·4H{sub 2}O using KNO{sub 3} as a nitrate source. - Highlights: • The first mixed alkali borate-nitrate K{sub 3}Na[B{sub 6}O{sub 9}(OH){sub 3}]NO{sub 3} is reported. • Hydrothermal conditions (240 °C, 3d) were used for the synthesis of K{sub 3}Na[B{sub 6}O{sub 9}(OH){sub 3}]NO{sub 3}. • Borate Sechserrings are interconnected through hydrogen-bonding.
