This review article describes a series of studies on the glass-ceramic Na+ superionic conductors with Na5YSi4O12 (N5)-type structure synthesized using the composition formula of Na3+3x-yR1-xPySi3-yO9 for a variety of rare earth elements, R, under the appropriate composition parameters. Recent researches on structural control of the Na+ superionic conducting glass-ceramics are also introduced. The optimum conditions for crystallization were discussed with reference to the conduction properties and the preparation of crack-free N5-type glass-ceramics. The effects of Si substitution with the various elements with tetrahedral oxygen coordination structure and Y substitution with the various R elements were also discussed on ionic conductivity of N5-type glass-ceramics, respectively.
