dc.description.abstract <p>The 0.5Na<sub>2</sub>S + 0.5[<em>x</em>GeS<sub>2</sub> + (1 – <em>x</em>)PS<sub>5/2</sub>] mixed glass former (MGF) glass system exhibits a nonlinear and nonadditive negative change in the Na<sup>+</sup> ion conductivity as one glass former, PS<sub>5/2</sub>, is exchanged for the other, GeS<sub>2</sub>. This behavior, known as the mixed glass former effect (MGFE), is also manifest in a negative deviation from the linear interpolation of the glass transition temperatures (<em>T</em><sub>g</sub>) of the binary end-member glasses, <em>x</em> = 0 and <em>x</em> = 1. Interestingly, the composition dependence of the densities of these ternary MGF glasses reveals a slightly positive MGFE deviation from a linear interpolation of the densities of the binary end-member glasses, <em>x</em> = 0 and <em>x</em> = 1. From our previous studies of the structures of these glasses using IR, Raman, and NMR spectroscopies, we find that a disproportionation reaction occurs between PS<sub>7/2</sub><sup>4-</sup> and GeS<sub>3</sub><sup>2-</sup> units into PS<sub>4</sub><sup>3-</sup> and GeS<sub>5/2</sub><sup>1-</sup> units. This disproportionation combined with the formation of Ge<sub>4</sub>S<sub>10</sub><sup>4-</sup> anions from GeS<sub>5/2</sub><sup>1-</sup> groups leads to the negative MGFE in <em>T</em><sub>g</sub>. A best-fit model of the <em>T</em><sub>g</sub>s of these glasses was developed to quantify the amount of GeS<sub>5/2</sub><sup>1-</sup> units that form Ge<sub>4</sub>S<sub>10</sub><sup>4-</sup> molecular anions in the ternary glasses (∼5–10%). This refined structural model was used to develop a short-range structural model of the molar volumes, which shows that the slight densification of the ternary glasses is due to the improved packing efficiency of the germanium sulfide species.</p>
