Characteristic temperatures, such as Tg (glass transition), Tx (crystallization temperature) and Tl (liquidus temperature) of glasses from the V2O5-MoO3-Bi2O3 system were determined by means of differential thermal analysis (DTA). The higher content of MoO3 improved the thermal stability of the glasses as well as the glass forming ability. The non-isothermal crystallization was
investigated and following energies of the crystal growth were obtained: glass #1 (80V2O520Bi2O3) EG=280 kJ mol-1, glass #2 (40V2O530MoO330Bi2O3) EG=422 kJ mol-1 and glass #3 (80MoO310V2O510Bi2O3) EG=305 kJ mol-1. The crystallization mechanism of glass #1 (n=3) is bulk, of glass #3 (n=1) is surface. Bulk and surface crystallization was supposed in glass #2. The presence of high content of a vanadium oxide
acts as a nucleation agent and facilitates bulk crystallization.
