Abstract:

Such important properties of glass as its strength, chemical durability, weathering, and potential as a glass electrode are determined or strongly influenced by reaction with water. These reactions take place at glass surfaces that are in contact with an atmosphere containing water or with an aqueous solution. The first section of the review is devoted to a discussion of the molecular groups on glass surfaces. Subsequently discussed are reactions of gaseous water with silica and other silicate glasses, and reactions of liquid water and aqueous solutions with glass, including pH effects. The literature has been reviewed up to April, 1972. Author
