DSC studies on sodium phosphate glasses doped with chlorides of Cd, Co and Ag

  • S. S. Das

A number of samples of sodium phosphate glasses doped with Cd/Co or Ag chlorides were prepared and characterized by X-ray diffraction, IR spectral, ion transport and DSC studies. It was found from DSC studies that the glass transition temperature (T g) and crystallization temperature (T c) values increased with the increasing concentrations of the dopants Cd or Co chlorides. However, the T g and T c values were found to decrease when the AgCl was taken as the dopant and the following sequence is observed: T g(CoCl2)>T g(CdCl2)>T g(AgCl); T c(CoCl2)>T c(CdCl2)>T c(AgCl) These results have been discussed and explained on the basis of changes in the structure of sodium phosphate glassy matrix by the addition of different cations as dopants.
