Abstract

A Pitzer model representing the thermodynamics of alkaline sodium aluminate solutions is presented. It constitutes a key part of our 10-component synthetic Bayer liquor model communicated in this series of papers. The present model calculates thermodynamic properties, such as heat capacities, osmotic coefficients, and densities, of these solutions as well as the solubilities of gibbsite and boehmite over temperature and concentration ranges of industrial interest.
