Dissolution of Glass at Elevated Temperatures

Naturevolume 199page998 (1963) | Download Citation



THE finite solubility of glass containing vessels has long been the concern of chemists interested in the properties of solutions and hence in preparing solutions of accurately controlled composition. By the use of certain types of glass or of silica this problem can, to a large extent, be eliminated at temperatures near ambient. However, recently, certain experimental results have been obtained which have brought to our notice the high solubility of a hard borosilicate glass at elevated temperatures.
