A statement issued by the Intelligence Directorate said, "The intelligence departments of the Military Intelligence Directorate seized material used in the manufacturing of high explosive devices consisting 50 bags of 50 kg of aluminum nitrate in Wadi al-Kadaf area of Anbar province.
Aluminum hydroxide is as used as a major feedstock material for manufacturing of other aluminum compounds such as aluminum sulfate, specialty calcined alumina, aluminum chloride, polyaluminum chloride, sodium aluminate, zeolites, aluminum nitrate etc.
Based upon economic use of chemicals, 2 mole L-1 aluminum nitrate solution was selected as optimum concentration for further extraction experiments.
Many of the existing techniques have a considerable cost and take significant time and typically use precursors from nonrenewable sources compared to the proteic sol-gel route proposed here, which uses gelatin from porcine skin as organic precursor (renewable source) and aluminum nitrate and/or tetraorthosilicate (TEOS) as inorganic precursors.
Aluminum nitrate nonahydrate, Al[(N[O.sub.3]).sub.3].9[H.sub.2]O (Sigma Aldrich) and nickel (III) nitrate, Ni[(N[O.sub.3]).sub.2].6[H.sub.2]O (Acros Organics) were mixed with octyl alcohol and lauric acid (Cognis Oleochemicals (M) Sdn Bhd) to form a mixture solution with molar ratio of 2:1 aluminum nitrate to nickel nitrate obtained from stoichiometric equation.
They synthetized alumina nanoparticles through the sol-gel method , which consisted on preparing a citric acid and aluminum nitrate solution in distilled water, with a concentration of 0.5 M of each substance.
They are Abdulmalik Fahd Abdulrahman Al-Baadi; Mohammed Khalid Saud Al-Osaimi; Abdullah Saad Abdullah Al-Shinaiber; Mohammed Abdulrahman Tweirish Al-Tuwairesh; and Mohammed Abdullah Mohammed Al-Khamees, the spokesman said, adding that two Kalashnikov rifles, which were used in the attack and another three rifles with 14 magazines, nine pistols, 12 relevant magazines, bayonet weapons, 230 kg of aluminum nitrate and potassium nitrate and pamphlets were confiscated from a farm in Al-Gasab province used by the terror cell as an apparatus.
In this research, aqueous solution of calcium nitrate and aluminum nitrate salts were added with colloid silicon at defined molar ratio to obtain alpha SiAlON with chemical composition of Ca1Si9Al3O1N15.
NNA - A Grand Cherokee vehicle, laden with 50 kilos of high explosives, 3 anti-tank mines, 6 cluster bombs-all wired to 20 kilograms of Aluminum nitrate, sulphur with multiple detonators spread about many places inside the car has been uncovered in Ma'moura in the southern suburb of Beirut and safely dismantled by army sappers yesterday, Yarzeh-based Army Command-Guidance Department spokesperson announced today.

A sol-gel method based on the Pechini process was used to synthesize different phases of alumina nanoparticles using a polymeric precursor with Aluminum nitrate. The emphasis was on investigating the effect of two different complexing agents, urea and citric acid, on the structural properties, particle size, and phase transformation during the heat treatment that was studied by XRD, TEM, SEM, BET, and FT-IR spectroscopy.
