This report summarizes the results of Phase I of a program to study the precipitation of boehmite from AlCl3 solutions. The amount of boehmite precipitation from dilute AlCl3 solutions is negligible below 200 degrees C. Above 200 degrees C the precipitation increases with increasing temperature approaching 40 pct at 300 degrees C. Addition of HCl acid to the dilute AlCl3 solution even in small quantities drastically reduces boehmite precipitation. Solution impurities such as FE, CA, MG, or NA substantially promote the precipitation of boehmite. No precipitation is observed from concentrated AlCl3 solution representing the leach liquor.
