The structure of molten B2O3 at ca. 650 °C has been investigated by the X-ray radial distribution method. The most likely two-dimensional quasi-crystalline model for the short-range arrangement is a mixed structure of boroxol rings and independent BO3 triangles. The estimated density for this model with an average inter-layer distance of 4.34 Å is in good agreement with the observed density.
