We synthesized various kinds of manganese borides by liquid-solid reaction from manganese and amorphous boron powders at high pressure and high temperature. The mixed powders with various atomic ratio of boron to manganese, B/Mn = 0.6, 1.2, 2, 3, 4, 8, were treated at temperature 1100–1350 °C and pressure 4.8-5.5 GPa, for 10–285 min. Typical manganese borides such as Mn4B, Mn2B, MnB, Mn3B4, MnB2, MnB4, and MnBx were synthesized. MnB2 plays an important role in the reaction, which is the middle product and it changes to Mn3B4 and boron with increasing holding time at a mixed atomic ratio of B/Mn = 2 and MnB2 reacted with boron to MnB4 with increasing holding time at a mixed atomic ratio of B/Mn = 8. The preferred orientation of Mn3B4 was also obtained at a mixed atomic ratio B/Mn = 2 and whose growth is highly oriented. The crystalline phases MnB2, Mn3B4, MnB, and Mn2B were prepared with large excess boron content.
