Article Preview

Non-aggregated nanoscale α-Al2O3 powders with average size ranging from 7 to 20 nm were prepared successfully at various conditions with the use of the hydrated aluminum sulfate extracted from kaolin by polyacrylamine (PAA) gel method. The calcination temperature was relatively lower about 100°C, compared to conventional solid-state reaction. It revealed that PAA worked as a chelating agent to disperse the Al3+ ions homogeneously, and the size of alumina nanoparticles could be controlled by varying the concentration of crosslinking agent.
