Abstract

Sodium borosilicate glasses were prepared by the sol-gel method and doped with a paramagnetic manganese probe. X-band electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) experiments, carried out on powdered samples, showed that even for molar ratios higher than 10%, manganese can be inserted in the glass. EPR results obtained on different doped silica glasses showed that the ability of Mn2+ to be inserted in the glassy network is connected with the presence of alkali species. The bulk location of the probe was confirmed by 29Si nuclear magnetic resonance investigations. EPR results indicated that manganese is located in distorted sites in an octahedral silica environment.
