Glasses with chemical compositional (50-x)B2O3-45ZnO-05TeO2-XNd2O3 (X=0.5,1.0,1.5 & 2.0) were prepared by conventional melt-quenching technique. The structural properties of the prepared glasses were determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis and FTIR analysis. The FTIR spectra were recorded at room temperature in the frequency range from 600 to 4000 cm-1. It was confirmed that the prepared glasses are amorphous in nature. The bonding parameters of the glasses were analyzed by using FTIR analysis and were confirmed to be ionic in nature. The density and molar volume of these glasses have been measured and analyzed.
