Paper Title:
Combustion Synthesis of Nanocrystalline Al2O3 Powders Using Urea as Fuel: Influence of Different Combustion Aids
  Abstract

The present article reports the results of studies related to the synthesis of nano-crystalline alumina powder by combustion process using different combustion aids. Aluminium nitrate as oxidant and urea as fuel were used as reagents. Starch and ammonium nitrate were compared as combustion aids. The results showed that employment of starting fuel with combustion aids resulted in synthesizing nano-crystalline alumina powder with small crystalline size (<20 nm) and fine agglomerates. By using combustion aid, the energetics of the combustion reaction has been changed. The different selection of combustion aid determines the characteristics of the as-synthesized powders.
