Aluminum oxide (Alumina) has been used for the removal of peroxides from the dehydration solvent (tetrahydrofuran, THF) in a protocol. Protocol involved the high resolution study of fine brain anatomy of fluorescently labeled mouse brains.
It may be used in the fabrication of polycrystalline lithium iodide-aluminum oxide solid electrolytes. The incorporation of aluminum oxide remarkably increased the conductivity of lithium iodide.
Brockmann aluminum oxides are suitable for column chromatography and adsorptive filtration.
