Access from EThOS:
In this work, average particle size and distribution, specific surface area, density, electrophoretic mobility, zeta potential and surface charge density of colloidal α-alumina are reported. These properties are necessary in describing the surface characteristics and stability towards aggregation of a colloid material when suspended in various conditions. It was recommended that, in order to describe adequately the stability of α-alumina suspensions in various conditions, rheological and sedimentation studies performed over the same range of conditions are required.
