Facile synthesis of hierarchical porous γ-Al2O3 hollow microspheres for water treatment.

Hierarchical porous γ-Al2O3 hollow microspheres were synthesized by a modified spray drying method. Ageing the precipitated precursor and spray-drying assisted by NH4Cl salts are considered as two key steps for the synthesis of γ-Al2O3 hollow microspheres. The mechanism of the formation of hierarchical porous γ-Al2O3 hollow microsphere was proposed… CONTINUE READING
