Microwave treatment is used to decrease power inputs and synthesis duration for the production of lithium triborate (LiB3O5). Sucrose, urea and water as thermal auxiliaries were added to the starting materials. The effect of amount of thermal auxiliaries against the duration of heating and synthesis temperature of the target material LiB3O5 was investigated. The synthesis stages were followed by doping of Al2O3 into LiB3O5 to enhance its thermo luminescent (TL) properties. Identification and characterization of the obtained compounds were investigated by XRD, FTIR, DTA, SEM and particle size analyzer. The glow curves were obtained by using a TL reader. Characterization studies showed that the best crystallinity of LiB3O5 can be done with 40 % sucrose, 20 % urea and 0.1 ml water addition to initial mixture. The TL results indicate that the particle size and phase purity of host compound affect TL intensities of glow curves.
