We used CRTA for the study of both the elaboration and characterization of several polyphosphate glasses. We show that controlled transformation rate thermal analysis is able to remove a systematic error present in classical thermal analysis, in the study of the precursor of the phosphate glass. We show too that in CRTA, water release in the phosphate glasses can take place by diffusion phenomena at low temperature and that it is not due to the crystallization. These two examples illustrate some interests of this inverse method in the study of the decomposition of inorganic compounds with water release.
