- To synthesize micro-sized and high crystalline alpha-alumina particles with uniformly and rapidly at low temperatures, various concentrated AlF3 seeds were added into an anhydrous ethanol solution saturated by an aluminum hydroxide starting material, gibbsite Al(OH)(3). Hexagonal shaped alpha-alumina powders highly crystallized were observed at lower temperature of 750 degrees C, in the ranges from 0.01-5.0 mol% seed concentrations, and the alpha-alumina crystal growth depends on the concentrations of added AlF3 seed. When 1.0 mol% AlF3 seeds were added, the largest alpha-alumina hexagonal crystals (average size about 4.8 m after calcination at 900 degrees C) were produced. Additionally the crystallinity and size of alpha-alumina particle increases linearly with the calcination temperature. The size rapidly increased with an increase of calcination temperatures to 800 degrees C and then gradually increased up to 900 degrees C. This result shows that crystal growth of alpha-alumina is affected by seed concentrations and crystallized calcination temperature. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l. All rights reserved.
