Title: Glass dissolution as a function of pH and its implications for understanding mechanisms and future experiments

Abstract

For years, we have been using a certain form of the glass dissolution rate equation. In this article, I examine the assumptions that have been made and suggest that the rate equation may be more complex than originally thought. Suggestions of experiments that are needed to correct or validate the exisiting form of the rate equation are made.
