Our recently developed model for the viscosity of silicate melts is applied to describe and predict the viscosities of oxidemelts containing manganese oxide. The model requires three pairs of adjustable parameters that describe the viscosities inthree systems: pure MnO, MnO–SiO₂ and MnO–Al₂O₃–SiO₂. The viscosity of other ternary and multicomponent silicatemelts containing MnO is then predicted by the model without any additional adjustable model parameters. Experimentalviscosity data are reviewed for melts formed by MnO with SiO₂, Al₂O₃, CaO, MgO, PbO, Na₂O and K₂O. The deviation ofthe available experimental data from the viscosities predicted by the model is shown to be within experimental error limits.
