Thermal Transformation of Alumina Hydrolysates and Gels Synthesized From Secbutoxyaluminium (III) Modified with Short-Chain Aliphatic Acids Dissolved in Butyl Ether
Martens, Wayde N., Frost, Ray L., Bartlett, John, & Kloprogge, J. Theo (2001) Thermal Transformation of Alumina Hydrolysates and Gels Synthesized From Secbutoxyaluminium (III) Modified with Short-Chain Aliphatic Acids Dissolved in Butyl Ether. Thermochimica Acta, 374(1), pp. 31-43.
A combination of X-ray diffraction and thermal analysis was employed to characterise alumina hydrolysates synthesised from the hydrolysis of anhydrous trisecbutoxyaluminium (III). X-ray diffraction showed that the alumino-oxy(hydroxy) hydrolysates were boehmite. For boehmite the lamellar spacings are in the b direction and multiple d(0 2 0) peaks are observed for the unaged hydrolysate. After 4 h of ageing, a single d(0 2 0) peak is observed at 6.53 Å. Thermal analysis showed five endotherms at 70, 140, 238, 351 and 445°C. These endotherms are attributed to the dehydration and dehydroxylation of the hydrolysate.
Alumina oxy(hydroxy) gels were formed from the hydrolysates of anhydrous aliphatic acid modified trisecbutoxyaluminium(III). X-ray diffraction shows the gels were expanded above the (0 2 0) spacing of boehmite due to the incorporation of acid in the interlamellar space. The thermal analysis patterns of the acid modified gels were significantly different from that of the unmodified gel.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
