Total Grant Value
Alumina refining, Hydrate precipitation, Oxalate seed poison, Processing Technology, Thickening
1995 - 1998
This study was part of a three-year project designed to characterize the adsorption of oxalate seed poisons (OSP) onto sodium oxalate, and the effect of such adsorption on oxalate nucleation, crystallization and thickening.
The effects of OSP were quantified, and a mechanistic understanding of their action was sought.
