Impedance spectroscopy was used to measure the changes of electrical properties during the isothermal crystallisation of the phosphate phase in bulk samples of a glass with nominal molar composition (3CaO.P2O5)20(SiO2)35(MgO)38.354(K2O)6.646, developed for biomedical applications. Crystallization studies were performed in isothermal conditions at 800°C and 860°C, and were monitored by impedance spectroscopy. XRD shows that a stable orthophosphate phase, Ca9MgK(PO4)7 crystallizes at about 860°C, after formation of earlier phosphate precursors formed at lower temperatures, namely oxyapatite (Ca5(PO4)3O) and tricalcium phosphate (Ca3(PO4)2). The conductivity of bulk glass samples decreases at 800°C, as the phosphate precursors phases crystallize. The opposite trend is observed on crystallizing the orthophosphate phase, at 860°C.
