This document specifies methods for the chemical analysis of impurities present in aluminium oxide powders used as a raw material for fine ceramics.

Aluminium oxide powders are decomposed by acid pressure decomposition, acid decomposition or alkali fusion. The calcium, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, silicon, sodium, titanium, zinc and zirconium contents in the test solution are determined by an inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES).
