Paper Title:
Pore Structure of Alumina Derived from the Alkyl Derivatives of Boehmite
  Abstract

Solvothermal reaction of aluminum alkoxides in various alcohols at 250-300 oC yielded alkyl derivatives of boehmite (alkoxyalumoxanes; AlO(OH)1-x(OR)x) in which alkyl groups were incorporated between the boehmite layers through the covalent bondings. In the present work, pore textures of aluminas prepared by calcination of the products were examined. The alumina obtained from the ethyl derivative of boehmite had a broad pore-size distribution, while the pore-size of the alumina obtained from the dodecyl derivative of boehmite distributed in a narrow range in the mesopore region. The mode pore diameter of the latter alumina increased with the increase in calcination temperature (600 oC, 39 Å; 800 oC, 54 Å; 1000 oC, 74 Å), but narrow pore-size distribution was maintained even after calcination at high temperatures.
