"The primary purpose of this thesis was to develop a direct method for the determination of alumina in certain silicates. The classical gravimetric procedure for the analysis of alumina in clays and related materials has often been regarded as being too lengthy and troublesome, especially when only the percentage of alumina was desired. The correct determination of alumina is undoubtedly one of the most unsatisfactory of the chemical constituents of siliceous materials, and therefore the development of a direct volumetric method for the determination of this constituent was made the main objective of this research, page .
