Sulphate glasses are typical ionic glasses in the sense they are constituted of discrete anions. In this review various physical properties of K2SO4, Na2SO4 and ZnSO4 glasses have been reported. A model of random close packing of ions has been suggested and used to interpret several properties including the origin of mixed alkali effect.
