This study elucidates the role of Al2O3 in the lithium borovanadate (LBV) system, Li2O-B2O3-V2O5, in improving the glass-forming region of LBV glass. This increased glass-forming tendency is likely due to formation of {[}AlO4](-) units. B-11, Al-27, and V-51 nuclear magnetic resonance measurements suggest an importance of V-O-Al linkages and distribution of Li for charge compensation of {[}AlO4](-) and {[}BO4](-) units. Intense V-51 NMR signals and resolved hyperfine coupling patterns in the electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectra indicate that the majority of vanadium is pentavalent (V5+) and minor amounts of paramagnetic vanadium (V4+) are present. The EPR interaction parameters suggest that the vanadyl-like environments can be described as tetragonally compressed distorted octahedra. Based on V-2p(3/2) X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, the V4+ concentration is estimated at < 3%. These vanadate glasses are attractive for energy storage applications, as they have higher specific capacities than commercial lithium-ion battery cathodes. (AU)
