I analyzed the above equation, and got this:

3C6H8O6(AA) + 3NaBO2(metaborate) => 3C6H7NaO6(ascorbate) + H3BO3(boric acid) + B2O3
Notice the extra 2 B's and 3 O's, which I combined into boron trioxide, which I doubt we'll actually get. Am I closer this time?

Do you know if this reaction would occur when mixed in the PG? Or does it only occur in water? I'm wondering if we actually get ascorbate in the PG.

Thanks as always,
