A study of the high-alkali region of glass formation in the system Na//2O plus B//2O//3 reveals that retention of CO//2 from carbonate starting materials can become a serious preparative problem at the high-alkali extreme. Results presented for glasses prepared using both Na//2O and Na//2CO//3 show that residual CO//2 can lead to major differences in physical properties which in this work are represented by the viscosity-related glass transition temperature.
