Abstract

An outline is presented of the conventional and chemical approaches to the structure of multicomponent glasses, together with a brief summary of the application of neutron scattering techniques to investigate the glass structure. The concept of the chemical structure of glasses, as developed by Shultz and co-workers, is then examined in the light of neutron scattering studies of oxide systems. It is concluded that, to date, thermodynamic predictions based on the model of associated solutions are entirely consistent with the results of neutron scattering studies.
