The preparation and the viscosity studies in salt free aqueous solutions of the glasses belonging to A2O3-MoO3-P2O5 (A=Al, Fe) systems are investigated. Their number average molecular weights were determined by end group titration. Intrinsic viscosities were determined in salt free aqueous solutions and were correlated with their molecular weight. For each glass sample the root mean square end-to-end distance was deduced.
