Boehmite derived alumina gels seeded (5 wt.%) with α-Al₂O₃, α-Fe₂O₃ and Fe(NO₃)₃ were examined by Mössbauer spectroscopy. Feric oxide orginated from Fe(NO₃)₃ was identified in defect alumina phases in two high disperse form as solid solution γ-(Al, Fe)₂O₃ and substituted hematite particles (α-(Fe, Al)₂O₃ ~ 6 nm). Dispersed Fe³⁺ ions reduce temperature of the crystallisation of α-Al₂O₃ (solution (Al, Fe₂O₃)) much more significantly than particulate seeds. Enhanced transformation has been attributed to solution effect of dispersed Fe³⁺ ions resulting in transparent ceramics sintered below 1300 °C.
