Structural investigation B2O3- Li2CO3- Al2O3 glasses by molar volume measurements and FTIR spectroscopy


A lithium aluminoborate glass system is prepared by the conventional melt quenching technique. The powder XR diffraction analysis of the prepared samples confirms the amorphous nature of the samples. The density and molar volume studies report the change of structure with the increase of aluminium content. The FTIR analysis of the samples revealed that the network structure of the prepared samples is mainly based on the BO3 and BO4 units.
