a-Alumina (Al2O3) is a ceramic material used widely due to its versatile properties such as high temperature stability, high strength at high temperature, high hardness with higher wear resistance, good thermal shock resistance etc [1, 2]. In addition, it is available abundantly at relatively low cost, therefore, is a popular material for fabrication of structural components, electronic substrates etc. a-Al2O3 is generally prepared by Bayer’s process [3], pyrolysis of suitable salts [4… 
Effect of Precursors on the Preparation and Texture of Mesoporous γ-Al2O3 Powders
We have studied processes underlying the formation of γ-Al2O3 from different precursors (aluminum hydroxide, aluminum isopropoxide, and aluminum nitrate) and synthesized mesoporous γ-Al2O3 powders at
Specific features of the phase transition of gibbsite into boehmite under hydrothermal treatment of floccules in an aqueous suspension
Effect of the conditions in which floccules of gibbsite are hydrothermally treated on the phase composition of products of its dehydration products, obtained at T = 180–210°C and P = 1.0–1.9 MPa was
PEG-400 Supported Alumina Synthesis , Characterization and Investigation of Morphological Properties
In this study, α-alümina structures are successfully prepared via hydrothermal synthesis supported with PEG-400. The effect of the PEG-400 as structure directing agent on the particle size is
State of manganese ions in the structure of corundum synthesized in supercritical water fluid
The kinetics and formation mechanism of doped corundum (α-Al2O3) from hydrargillite (γ-Al(OH)3) in supercritical water fluid (SCWF) in the presence of manganese ions are studied. It was ascertained
