Effects of the sample surface-area on the dissolution rate, ion concentrations in the reacting solution, and the change in glass structure were studied.
When the sample surface-area increased, the weight loss per unit area and ion concentrations per unit area decreased. The major species first dissolved in the initial stage of reaction was the modifier Zn2+, followed by the breakdown of chain structure of (PO4)3- tetrahedron.
According to the structure analysis, the original glass has the pyro-phosphate structure, in which the chains of (PO4)3- tetrahedron were cross-linked by Sn2+ and Zn2+. The chain structure was attacked by water molecule during dissolution.
The dissolution of glass was not homogeneous over the sample surface, resulted from the possible oxidation of some Sn2+ to Sn4+ in the less-etched region.
