Recent attempts to vitrify KHSO4 have been fruitless, bringing into question the glass‐forming ability of this, the only hitherto known glass‐forming sulfate. Since KHSO4 is easily converted to the pyrosulfate at temperatures above its melting point, it is likely that previously reported KHSO4 glass samples were actually mixtures of the bisulfate and the pyrosulfate, with the pyrosulfate aiding vitrification.
