Any other information on results incl. tables

Between 25 and ca 200°C, the DSC trace shows four endotherm peaks (107.5°C, 128.3°C, 174.3°C and 212.6°C), and the TG trace decrease continuously to 53%, corresponding to the loss of crystallisation water.

Both traces remains stable up to ca 500°C. An endotherm and a loss of mass occur at 549°C. 40% TG is supposed to correspond to decomposition with release of NH3 +1/2 H2SO4 (or 1/2 H20 + 1/2 SO3).

Above 600°C, DSC slowly increase, with no significant peaks, but only two very small exotherms at 917°C and 1205°C. The maximum signal recorded was 1 mW/mg at 1400°C.

The TG trace decrease with a shoulder between ca 600°C and 900°C. At higher temperatures, the line is horizontal, with Al2O3 residue remaining after loss of SO3.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

Combined Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and ThermoGravimetric Analysis (TGA) study on the substance showed that the substance undergoes thermal decomposition starting from its melting point, with first loss of crystallisation water. The anhydrous substance remains then stable between ca 200°C and 500°C, but is followed by NH3 and SO3 release. Aluminium oxide residue is obtained above 900°C.
