The theory of Raman scattering from the vibrations of amorphous materials is applied to the spectra of B2O3 glass and its melt. Experimental evidence is obtained indicating that low frequency scattering in the melt liquid is also due to first order scattering from intermolecular vibrational states. The relationship among several scattering mechanisms in liquids is discussed.
