In the current paper, we have determined the desulfurization ability of a CaO–MgO–SiO2–Al2O3 slag system using slag-metal equilibrium technique. The chemical composition of slag samples consists of Al2O3 in the range of 25–30 wt%, CaO/SiO2 ratio (0.8–1.6) and MgO (8–16 wt%). All the experiments are conducted at a temperature of 1773 K. The sulphur content in the slag as well as in metal after desulfurization reaction is analyzed using XRF (X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy) for calculating sulphur partition ratio (LS) of the slags. The influence of Al2O3, CaO/SiO2 ratio and MgO content on LS have been studied. It is observed that LS increase with an increase in CaO/SiO2 ratio and MgO content, but it reduces as the Al2O3 content increase in slag. Also, the amount of bridge oxygen ([BO]) represented by (O0) decreases with increase in basicity and MgO content. However, O0 increases with increase in Al2O3. It is witnessed that the experimental values closely fit with the values obtained from corrected optical basicity model.
