    Abstract

    A hydrothermal oxidation process for preparing pure boehmite, alpha-Al2O3, and their mixtures by oxidation of pure aluminum metal is described, and the reaction mechanisms involved are identified. SEM images are presented which show distinct morphologies of boehmite, alpha-Al2O3, and boehmite + alpha-Al2O3 phases. Near sperical shapes of alpha-Al2O3 powder phases are obtained at 550 C with 30 percent volume of fill.
