Description

Product Description

Aluminium oxide is an amphoteric oxide with the chemical formula Al2O3. It is commonly referred to as alumina (α-alumina), aloxide, or corundum in its crystalline form, as well as many other names, reflecting its widespread occurrence in nature and industry. An oxide of aluminum, occurring in nature as various minerals such as bauxite, corundum, etc. It is used as an adsorbent, desiccating agent, and catalyst, and in the manufacture of dental cements and refractories. This product is Basic Technical A

Application Notes

Alumina catalyses a variety of reactions that are useful industrially.It is widely used to remove water from gas streams. Also used for its hardness and strength. It is widely used as an abrasive, including as a much less expensive substitute for industrial diamond. Many types ofsandpaper use aluminium oxide crystals. In chemistry laboratories, alumina is a medium for chromatography, available in basic (pH 9.5), acidic (pH 4.5 when in water) and neutral formulations. As well, it is used as a dosimeter for radiation protection and therapy applications for its optically stimulated luminescence properties.
