The chemistry of glass is a rapidly developing field brought about by the merging together of advanced chemistry and advanced physics. While acting as a text book on the subject, this work may also serve as a useful reference source for students and research workers alike.


Part 1 Glass formation: general aspects; glass formers; atomistic hypotheses of glass formation; kinetic approach to glass formation. Part 2 Phase transformation in glass: crystallization; liquid-liquid phase separation; glass ceramics. Part 3 Set-gel method, Dr I.Strawbridge: general chemistry; sol-gel processing; applications. Part 4 Physical properties: density of glasses; partial molar volume of constituent oxides in glasses and melts; refractive index of glasses; thermal expansion of glasses; viscosity of glasses; surface tension of glasses; electrical properties of glasses; strength of glasses, A.K.Varshneya. Part 5 Batch melting reaction, Pavel Hrma: experimental techniques; first, second, third stage of melting. Part 6 Chemical durability of glass; mechanism of reactions of glasses with aqueous solution; factors affecting chemical durability measurements of a glass; effects of glass composition; effect of ph of the solution on chemical durability of glass; solubility of silica in aqueous solution; glass electrodes. Part 7 Oxidation-reduction equilibrium in glass: activity corrections; oxidation-reduction in glass; theory of redox reactions in solutions. Part 8 Acid-based concepts in glass: acid-base relationships in glasses; oxygen ion activity; transition metal ions as acid-base indicators in glass; oxydation-reduction equilibrium in glass; filled shell ions with nsconfiguration as an acid-base indicator in glass; Vanadyl ion as an acid-base indicator in glass. Part 9 Coloured glasses: atomic structure and the periodic classification transition metals; theories of chemical bonding in transition metal complexes; application of bonding theories in interpreting d-d absorption spectra; absorption spectra of transition metal ions; charge-transfer bands; anionic substitution in glass; photosensitive glasses; copper ruby glasses; measurement of colour, colour diagram and tristimulous values. Part 10 Polymeric nature of glass melts.


'I am delighted to have had the opportunity to review this book; it is a must for scholars in this field, and I would heartily recommend it to those who even have only a passing interest in the subject of chemistry of glasses.' Glass Technology (Review of previous edition); 'A contribution to the field of glass science that will be highly welcome by all members of this field. The book is authoritative, well written, and illustrated in a highly useful manner...This book will be regarded as an important addition to all glass and ceramic libraries throughout the world.' Choice (Review of previous edition); 'expositions are generally clear and succinct' - Journal of Materials Chemistry
