Abstract:(60-x)Na2O.xPbO.40P2O5 (10 x 50) glasses were prepared and studied. Their density, oxygen molar volume, glass transition temperature, infrared spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy have been investigated in order to understand the structural role of PbO in these glasses. Infrared and Raman spectra show that phosphate network depolymerisation occurs when x increases. When lead is added to binary sodium phosphate glass 60Na2O. 40P2O5 structures consist of Pb tetrahedra linked to pyrophosphate units through Pb-O-P bonds. There is evidence for Pb-O-P linkages in the Raman from glasses with the highest PbO contents. The oxygen molar volume V0, glass transition temperature Tg and structural data are correlated.
