High-Temperature Borate Liquids: Physical Properties of Glass-Forming Compositions

  • E. F. Riebling
Part of the Materials Science Research book series (MSR, volume 12)


A pure network liquid such as molten SiO2 is essentially a random three-dimensional arrangement of corner shared SiO4 tetrahedra. In contrast, the orthosilicate composition (33 mole % SiO2) contains a completely depolymerized mixture of SiO4 −4 anions. Any composition between these two extremes must therefore contain a relatively complex mixture of partially polymerized anions. Practice has shown that physical-chemical properties of such mixtures are highly dependent upon structure and composition.
