ALUMINA AND HYDRATE - UNMASKING THEIR MYSTERIES EIGHT YEARS ON

Roach, G.I D. and Cornell, J.B.

At the Gladstone Conference in 1988 many of the techniques available to study the physical structure of hydrate and alumina and the distribution of impurities were presented. Many new techniques are discussed and examples of the information that can be obtained are given. The low surface area of hydrate (<0.2 m2/g) can now be measured using nitrogen B.E.T.
