Short summary
Boron is a common additive in industrial glasses used for a wide variety of applications and in experimental degassing studies regarding exoplanet atmospheres. It is therefore important to constrain the behavior of this component in the melt phase. For this reason we investigated experimentally the evaporation of B2O3 from Ca- and Mg-bearing aluminoborosilicate melts at different temperatures, as a function of time and oxygen fugacity.
