Keywords: Gibbsite -y-Al(OH)3 | sodium hydroxide | kinetics | leaching | activation energy

In order to study the kinetics and mechanism of the reaction, laboratory leaching was carried out with industrially produced gibbsite γ-Al(OH)3 in aqueous solutions containing an excess of sodium hydroxide. The results obtained reaction temperature, duration and base concentration varied. The basic kinetic parameters were determined from: the reaction rate constant k=8.72·107 exp (-74990/RT) and the process activation energy in the range Ea=72.5-96.81 kJ/mol.
