In this study, we verified the relationship among the electrical conductivity, chemical durability, and structure of conductive vanadate glass in which $BO_3$ and $BO_4$ and $V^{4+}$ and $V^{5+}$ coexist simultaneously. We prepared samples of vanadium borophosphate glass with various compositions, given by $50V_2O_5-xB_2O_3-(50-x)P_2O_5$(x = 0 ~ 20 mol%) and $70V_2O_5-xB_2O_3-(70-x)P_2O_5$(x = 0 ~ 10 mol%), and analyzed the electrical conductivity, chemical durability, FT-IR spectroscopy, thermal properties, density, and molar volume. Substituting $B_2O_3$ for $P_2O_5$ was found to improve the electrical conductivity, chemical durability, and thermal properties. From these results, we can draw the following conclusions. First, the electrons shift from the electron rich $V^{4+}$ to the electron deficient $BO_3$ as the $B_2O_3$ content increases. Second, the improvement in chemical durability and thermal properties is attributed to an increase in cross-linked structures by changing from a $BO_3$ structure to a $BO_4$ structure.
