    • Abstract


      Sulphate glasses are typical ionic glasses in the sense they are constituted of discrete anions. In this review various physical properties of K2SO4, Na2SO4 and ZnSO4 glasses have been reported. A model of random close packing of ions has been suggested and used to interpret several properties including the origin of mixed alkali effect.
