The effect of addition of small amounts of P2O5 in the lithium disilicate glasses results in the scavenging of lithium metal ions by a phosphate group, Li3PO4. As a consequence of the scavenging, the silicate network partially repolymerises. The phosphate group remains intact during heat treatment of the optically clear, X-ray amorphous and slightly nucleated base glasses. However, the relative amounts of the silicate species, Q(m) (0 <= m <= 4), are dependent on the state of the glasses. These amounts, in the optically clear and X-ray amorphous, do not change with heat treatment but they do change, i.e. disproportionation occurs in the slightly nucleated and milky coloured glasses. The disproportionation follows the relation 2Q(3) -> Q(2) + Q(4) which is evident from the relative intensity of the different peaks.
