The structure of aged melt-quenched sodium borophosphate glasses of composition (P2O5)(40)(B2O3)(x)(Na2O)(60-x) (with x in the range 10-40) has been studied by high-energy X-ray diffraction (HEXRD), P-31 and B-11 magic angle spinning (MAS) NMR. Similar to the fresh samples, both P-O-P and P-O-B linkages are found to be present in these glasses. All three techniques show that the cross-linking between borate and phosphate units increases with boron oxide content. Distinctively upon aging, the glass is found to hydrolyze causing the network to degrade. At the same time, crystalline phases are now also observed. XRD and DTA show that the samples have a higher tende...
