Various Ways of Characterization of Alkali Leached Residue



Chakraborty and Ghosh (1978a, b) showed that on heat treatment of alkali leached residue at 1250 °C exotherm, the XRD reflections of spinel disappear with concomitant increase in the intensities of mullite reflections as shown in equation below.
