The Investigation of Aluminum Sulfate-Potassium Chloride Solid Phase Reaction

Authors: İ. Ayhan ŞENGİL

Abstract: It was found that aluminum sulfate reacts with potassium chloride to produce K_{2}SO_{4}, Al_{2}O_{3}, and Cl_{2} in the solid phase at 700 ^{\circ}C. This reaction was investigated with thermal analysis under air and nitrogen atmosphere. By changing temperature and time parameters, the actual yield of conversion in question was examined analytically and the optimum temperature and time were found for the reaction. The rate expression of the solid phase reaction was also investigated and the rate equation was obtained.

Keywords: aluminum sulfate, Potassium chloride solide phase reaction.
