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.
