From Our Editors

Glass science has advanced rapidly over the past two decades. The structure and chemical durability of different glasses is now better understood, and far more efficient processing methods have been developed. Many of these advances were based directly on discoveries made in the 1960s, when the basic sciences were concentrated on unveiling the structural and compositional mysteries of glass. This Second Edition of Robert H. Doremus's classic, Glass Science, has been extensively revised and updated to reflect recent advances, while retaining the pedagogical structure that made its predecessor a superb tool for both teaching and professional research. Special emphasis is placed on areas of research that have been particularly active in recent years. Two new chapters have been added: one covers chemical durability (the reaction of glass with water), which includes recent work related to corrosion of glass and radioactive waste disposal: the other concerns the reaction of gasses with glass, especially oxygen. Other new or expanded discussions cover recent advances in
