Title: Structural investigation of Zn doped sodium bismuth borate glasses

Abstract

A series of Bismuth Borate Oxide Glass samples with composition x(ZnO):(15-x)Na{sub 2}O:15Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3}:70B{sub 2}O{sub 3} (variation in x is from 6 to 12 mole %) have been prepared by conventional melt quenching technique. All the chemicals used were of Analytical Grade. In order to verify the amorphous nature of the prepared samples the X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) was done. The physical and structural properties have been explored by using the techniques such as density, molar volume and FTIR in order to understand the effect of alkali and transition metal ions on the structure of these glasses. The results obtained by these techniques are in good agreement to one another and with literature as well. With the increase in the content of ZnO, the increase in density and some variations in structural coordination (ratio of BO{sub 3} & BO{sub 4} structural units) have been observed.
