## Abstract

Glasses in the system $xPbO:(100- x)B_2O_3 (22\leq x\leq 85$ mol%) have been studied by Raman spectroscopy with a view to understand the effect of PbO on the borate network. The conversion of three-fold to four-fold coordinated boron takes place primanly by incorporation of $BO_4$ into boroxol rings in the form of pentaborate and diborate units. For high lead content, back conversmn of four to three coordinatmn of borons occurs and the network consists primardy of pyroborate, orthoborate and metaborate groups.
