Thermal decomposition and hydrothermal reactions of aluminum oxides and hydroxides were studied. The starting material was gibbsite pretreated by grinding in different ways. Sixteen kinetic models were fitted and the rate constants were estimated at different temperatures. Mechanical activation of the starting gibbsite had an effect on the reactivity of samples in several subsequent reactions. A new quantity, the relative residual variance is defined for comparison of different linearized models, and it is proposed as a criterion of fit. This was applied in making statistics in order to find the well-fitting models.
