Zinc ash has been used as a zinc source for precipitation of zinc borates through leaching-purification-precipitation route. Zinc ash containing about 71% Zn, 0.6% Fe, 28% Cl-, 0.2% Pb, and traces other elements such as Cu, Cd, As etc. in ppm level were leached in sulfuric acid. The leach solutions generated were purified by pH adjustment, followed by precipitation of borates using borax (Na2B4O7 center dot 10H(2)O). It has been observed that, the phase compositions of precipitated zinc borates as well as their morphologies are quite sensitive to B/Zn molar ratio, solution pH, precipitation temperature and ageing period. Precipitation of particular zinc borate phase of interest (3ZnO center dot 3B(2)O(3)center dot 3.5H(2)O) was found to be facilitated at higher precipitation temperature (>= 95 degrees C) and in the pH range 5.5-6.0 with B/Zn molar ratio >4.0.
