The ability of various fused-salt systems to supercool and form glassy solids at low temperatures and the properties of their supercooled liquid states are reviewed; and the relationship between properties of such liquids and those of oxide glasses, on the one hand, and of organic molecular glass-forming liquids, on the other, is explored. Fused salts serve as an effective bridge between the two major classes of glass-forming liquids. Their contribution to the understanding of the principles that underlie the properties of simple fused salts, and of simple liquids in general, is discussed briefly.
