The hydrothermal and decomposition reactions of differently ground gibbsite and its reaction products were studied. The samples were treated isothermally under hydrothermal conditions or in air, and the products were characterized by thermogravimetry and IR spectroscopy. It was found that the method and duration of grinding and the particle size of the starting gibbsite influenced the reactivity of the gibbsite itself and that of the primary reaction products. In a later step of the reaction sequence (hydrothermal rehydration of γ-alumina), the effects of the differences in the properties of the starting gibbsites were insignificant.
