This may be attributed to the closer packing of atoms to the formation of strong structure, where the titanium forms some new interconnections within the glass network because it has a large electrical charge (+4).Also it is shown that the density of the glass- ceramic was higher than that of the equivalent glass (soda lime glass).
Figures(7, 8, 9 and 10) show the X-ray diffraction patterns for the produced glass ceramic samples from soda lime glass with different percentages of titanium dioxide (0,3,6 and 10 % wt.

For every mole of C[O.sub.2] that is chemically bound to soda lime, a mole of water is formed that is subsequently evaporated during drying.
Edwards' 1982 paper includes empirical data on known additions of C[O.sub.2] to soda lime that support his conclusion.
