Pore structures of Alkoxide-derived aluminas are investigated by BET Nitrogen Sorption method. Aluminas are derived from hydrolysis of aluminum isopropoxide at 3$^{\circ}$and 8$0^{\circ}C$ with stoichiometric quantities of water in use. The resulting hydrolysates are then subjected to thermal treatment for a fixed period of time from 200$^{\circ}$to 50$0^{\circ}C$ in gradual fashions. The hydrolysates obtained at 3$^{\circ}C$ increase their pore volumes with increasing heat treatment, exhibiting their pore-size distributio as twinpeaked. In contrast, the reverse is true to the hydrolysates obtained at 8$0^{\circ}C$, showing their pore size distribution as single-peaked. This suggests that the pore shapes of the former shall be slit-shaped, whilst whose as the latter shall be of a ink-bottle shape. All the evidence indicates that the hydrolytic temperatures play an important role not only in determining the pore shapes of the alumina samples, but in controlling the liberation of structural water in the alumina layers. It is also, surmized that the subsequent heat treatment may at best affect the mode of pore size distribution for the resulting alumina product(s).
