The rehydration of several α-Al2O3 has been investigated by means of XRD, DTA, TG and nitrogen adsorption methods. It is found that all α-Al2O3 samples are capable of rehydration at 250℃ and under saturated pressure. The rehydrated products depend on starting α-Al2O3. α-Al2O3 dehydrated at above 1000℃ rehydrates to boehmite; α-Al2O3 derived from diaspore at low temperatures rehydrates to diaspore. The quantitative analysis of the rehydration of α-Al2O3 has been studied.
