Abstract

Chromium-doped Alumina was synthesized via combustion technique. Nanoparticles were produced from aluminum nitrate, ammonium dichromate, and sucrose. Silver nitrate was used as catalyst. The use of sucrose (C 12 H 22 O 11 ) as dispersion agent and ammonium dichromate both as fuel and a doping agent source are new techniques in the synthesis of Cr-doped Al 2 O 3 nanoparticles. The heat-treated powders were characterized by X- ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. Heat treatment of the nanoparticles was performed at temperatures of 900 °C, 1000 °C, and 1100 °C, which resulted in the formation of porous agglomerated chromium-doped alumina nanoparticles. Chromium-doped alumina with an average crystalline size of 35 nm was successfully synthesized via combustion technique with sucrose as fuel.
