Summary:Using 27Al MAS NMR, Raman and IR spectroscopy of anhydrous orthoclase and albite glasses quenched from up to 10 GPa, no clear evidence was found for high-coordinate Al or Si. The similarity of the 27Al MAS NMR spectra of both glasses suggests that their structures behave consistently with increasing P. The effect of P is to reduce the distribution of T-O-T bond angles about the mean T-O-T angle by reaction of Si-O-Si with Al-O-Al linkages to form Si-O-Al links or by a more general mechanism of elastic collapse of the random network.
