Abstract : Systematic studies by metallurgists in many laboratories over the past twenty five years have provided a large body of thermodynamic data upon which theories of slag constitution may be developed and tested. In this paper an attempt is made to outline some recent developments in this field. Of particular interest is the application of polymer theory to silicate melts. Application of ideas derived from polymer chemistry has introduced new concepts in chemical metallurgy. In addition, techniques are now being developed for investigating directly the constitution of quenched slags. With the advent of these techniques as a supplement to thermodynamic studies the chemistry of slags is entering a new and exciting phase of development and further progress in this field is to be expected.
