    • Abstract

       

      The effect of temperature of activation on the capillary space in alumina and ferric oxide gels has been studied. Structural changes in alumina gel have been noticed in the neighbourhood of 500°C. and 900°C. and their significance discussed.

      Adsorption on alumina and ferric oxide gels from binary mixtures of liquids has been studied and the behaviour of these has been compared with that of silica. It is concluded that the chemical nature of a gel markedly affects selective adsorption from binary mixtures of liquids.
