The characterization of the reaction between a sodium trisilicate glass and water has been performed using the cylindrical internal reflectance method. This technique uses a variation of the ATR method to limit the effective depth of penetration by the sample beam, and avoids the problems associated with the intense infrared absorption by water. The corrosion reaction was monitored in real time under controlled conditions of leachant flow and solution chemistry.
