Abstract: Phase equilibria of the reciprocal quaternary system Mg2+, K+//Cl-, B4O2-7-H2O at 288 K were studied by the isothermal solution equilibrium method. Solubilities and densities in solution of the system were determined experimentally. The equilibrium phase diagram and the density-composition diagram of the quaternary system were plotted using experimental data. Experimental results also showed that the double salt KCl·MgCl2·6H2O formed in the quaternary system Mg2+, K+//Cl-, B4O2-7-H2O at 288 K. The quaternary system at 288 K had three invariant points (F1, F2, and F3), seven univariant curves, and five fields of crystallization [MgB4O7·9H2O, K2B4O7·4H2O, KCl, MgCl2·6H2O, and KCl·MgCl2·6H2O]. The results are discussed simply.
