Summary

Alumina and alumina-based compounds were prepared using high specific surface area AI2O3 by a novel preparation method. Impregnation with either liquid or vapor species followed by a thermal treatment under air or a reducing atmosphere leads to nanostructured spinels, mullite, Al2O3-metal or AI2O3-oxide composites.
