How many peroxy linkage present in Sodium perborate?

Sodium perborate consisting of a cyclic structure with two peroxy linkage containing –B–O–O–B–O–O– ring with two hydroxy groups attached to each boron atom.

The elementary structural unit of sodium perborates is a dimer anion B2O4(OH)4, in which two boron atoms are joined by two peroxy linkage  in a chair-shaped 6-membered ring, and the ring adopts a chair conformation and the simplistic formula of sodium borate is NaBO3·nH2O-type.

Sodium perborate is a white, odorless, water-soluble chemical compound with the chemical composition NaBO3.and it is crystallizes as;

The monohydrate, NaBO3·H2O,

Trihydrate, NaBO3·3H2O and

Tetrahydrate, NaBO3·4H2O
