A series of glasses in the V2O5-P2O5 system was prepared and their compositions analysed. The glass densities and molar volumes were determined. The results obtained revealed three compositional regions. In addition, the infrared absorption spectra of these glasses were measured at room temperature in the frequency range 1600–200 cm−1. The compositional dependence of the bands present, attributed to a given band and mode of vibration, was investigated. However, the infrared data confirmed the results obtained from the density and molar volume measurements.
