Glass foams are materials consisting of a light-weight porous glass structure of special importance in the fields of civil engineering and bio-implants. Typically, their synthesis involves the thermal foaming of a powder mixture of glass with a foaming agent that decomposes at the foaming temperature, resulting in a solid glass skeleton permeated by empty pores. In our work, we synthesized a series of glass foams followed by a phase-separation procedure and acid leaching. We used a powdered mixture of silica-based glasses, MnO2 and C which we submitted to a foaming process at 815 oC. Afterwards, the material was left to cool inside the oven to temperatures around 500 oC and maintained at a constant temperature for phase separation. We then acid leached, washed and dried the samples. Based on the results obtained using X-ray CT at the micro and nanometer scales we observed that slight changes in the preparation procedure resulted in foams with different porosity, pore sizes, pore volumes and sphericity.
