We give a brief review of ion dynamics studies of liquid and glassy states of SiO2 and silicate colutions which have been carried out in recent years in this laboratory. We summarize studies on SiO2, Na+ migration in Na2O·SiO2 in the "glassy state", and ionic coordination in multicomponent framework silicates. We present new results on the coordination of Al3+ in albite as a function of pressure and show that it is consistent with results of laboratory studies on albite glasses formed at high pressure. We compare calculated PVT data for jadeite, albite and diopside and relate the behavior of the low pressure compressibility to the spinodal limit at negative pressures. Some preliminary studies of inert gas solution in jadeite and of CO2 solution in a glass having a composition of approximately Na2O·3SiO2 are described.
