Abstract : Infrared reflection spectroscopy and atomic emission spectroscopy have been applied to the study of glass corrosion using several new techniques that enable surface reaction kinetics to be measured on bulk samples as a function of applied stress, flow rate, temperature, time, pH, and relative humidity. Applications of these methods to the corrosion of a Li2O-2SiO2 glass is discussed. (Author)
