A 10Na(2)S·30B(2)O(3)·60SiO(2) (mol %) glass was prepared, and the changes in glass structure and chemical state of sulfur caused by phase separation were investigated. In the as-prepared and heat-treated glasses, sulfur was present as S(2)− anion and polysulfide S(2)− and S(3)− anions, and Si–S and B–S bonds were not confirmed. A phase separation by spinodal decomposition was observed after heat-treatment, where sulfur was preferentially distributed to borate-rich phase. Even after the phase separation, formation of non-bridging oxygen was not recognized. The preferential distribution of sulfur anions in the present glass was explainable on the basis of the change in population of sodium ions, which compensated the negatively-charged sulfur anions.
