Summary

We present in this contribution the effects of magnesium as a doping element on the transformation-densification behavior of a γ-alumina, with the idea that a phase transformation could be used to enhance the densification of nanostructured alumina. In this study we use readily available commercial transition alumina powders. The effects of other dopants (yttrium and zirconium) will be reported elsewhere [5].
