Abstract

The effect of crystallite size on the thermal phase change and porous properties of boehmite was investigated using boehmites with crystallite sizes of 2.9 to 24.4 nm and boehmite gels prepared by precipitation and hydrothermal methods. The dehydroxylation temperature of boehmite increases, its phase transition temperature from γ- to θ-Al2O3 decreases and the θ- to α-Al2O3 transition temperature increases as the crystallite size of the boehmite increases. Boehmite with a crystallite size of ∼5 nm shows the highest specific surface area and greatest thermal stability. This boehmite contains pores of about 2-3 nm radius, suggested to be responsible for the superior porous properties and thermal stability.
