Abstract

In this study, synthesis and speciation of polyaluminum chloride (PAC) for application in water treatment was investigated using a colorimetric speciation method. It was possible to produce stable preparations of PAC solutions in which a relatively stable cationic polymer predominated. The mode of preparation has a dramatic effect on the composition of PAC preparation. Some important parameters such as hydroxyl ligand number, mixing intensity, base injection rate and method, and aging were identified in this study.
