Tri n-butyl borate can be synthesized by reacting boric acid
with the appropriate butyl alchol under azeotropic conditions.
After complete removal of water, the borate can be purified
by fractional distillation ((n-butyl borate)lit. reported
190°/200 mm. or 230–235° atmospheric)
taking care to protect the product from atmospheric moisture,
decent yields (>90%) can be achieved.

see ref.
W. J. Bannister, U. S. pat. 1,668,797
[C. A. 22, 2172 (1928)].

Similar borates can also be prepared by reaction of alcohol
with boron triacetate or boric anhydride.

This info can be also found on the orgsyn website.

Goodluck
