The solubility of Co3O4, Cu2O, CuO, NiO, and Mn2O3 in molten B2O3 and Na2O-2B2O3 has been studied at a temperature of 900°C under static conditions. The concentration of the dissolved metal oxides was determined by X-EDS and XPS elemental analysis. Uniformity of metal distribution has been confirmed using X-EDS and backscatter electron image mapping. It was found that the solubility of all metal oxides increased significantly with Na2O content in the B2O3 solvent. The impact of a temperature increase of 150°C and the influence of K2O doping were evaluated and found to not cause any significant change.
