Alumina Powders and Nanoparticles

Posted by MSE Supplies Admin on

Alumina or aluminum oxide (Al2O3) is the most commonly occurring of the aluminum oxides.  It naturally occurs as the mineral corundum which is the crystal structure of the precious gems ruby and sapphire.  Alumina powders and nanoparticles are widely used in crystal growth and other industrial applications such as transparent ceramics, polishing compounds, pigments, and vapor deposition materials.  MSE Supplies offers a variety of high purity alumina powders and nanoparticles with different particle sizes at highly competitive prices.


 An example where high purity alumina powders and particles were used to produce outstanding research is presented by K.S. Cho, J.H. Min, H.K. Lee and H.D. Kim (2020) Reducing the density deviation in alumina by pressure-vacuum hybrid slip casting by employing powders with different particle sizes, Journal of Asian Ceramic Societies, 8:2, 407-415, DOI: 10.1080/21870764.2020.1749372In the paper, the authors discuss how alumina powders and nanoparticles of different size and morphology in conjunction with a vacuum slip casting technique produce sintered Al2O3 ceramics with a uniform density distribution that was close to that of the theoretical density.
