    Orthoboric acid (H3BO3)

    “B(OH)3 is a very weak monobasic acid and acts exclusively by hydroxyl-ion acceptance rather than proton donation:

    B(OH)3 + 2H2O ⇋ H3O^+ + [B(OH)4]^- pk = 9.25 ”

    N. N. Greenwood, A. Earnshaw, Chemistry of the Elements 2nd ed. (1997) p 203

    Hence B(OH)3 + OH^- → [B(OH)4]^-

    The products are sodium bromate and water.

    Na = +1

    H = +1

    BrO3 = -3

    Sodium bromate = Na3BO3

    NaOH + H3BO3 → Na3BO3 + H2O

    To balance this equation, make 3 NaOH and 3 H2O.

    3 NaOH + H3BO3 → Na3BO3 + 3 H2O

    The reaction of NaOH +H3BO3 is NaOH + H3BO3 → NaH2BO3 + H2O.
