This paper describes the preparation of Sodium Polyphosphates Coacervates (NaPC) through the direct addition of different methanol molar fractions to a sodium polyphosphate solution. The presence of methanol reduces the dielectric constant medium and it promotes the coacervate formation. Rheology measurement shows that the NaPC viscosity is dependent on a methanol molar fraction, which is caused by the dielectric constant reduction of the water-methanol mixture. Raman spectra for the lyophilized NaPC show that the symmetric P-O-t stretching mode is more sensitive than the symmetric P-O-b stretching mode, due to the approach of the adjacent polyphosphate chains. The P-31 NMR spectra also confirm a decrease in the Q(2)/Q(1) ratio because of the methanol content. Besides, we have obtained transparent soft Glass-Materials to melt NaPC at 800 degrees C.
