We have used small angle neutron scattering, static light scattering and 27Al NMR to examine the structure and composition of alumina sol-gels formed by the hydrolysis of aluminum alkoxides. For LT sols at low acid concentrations, and HT gels over a wide range of acid concentration, 27Al solution NMR suggests, by the dearth of spectral resonances, that high molecular weight species are being formed. Analysis of the small angle neutron scattering data in the Porod regime indicates these sol-gels exhibit a power-law dependence consistent with mass fractal dimensions ranging from 1.45 to 1.8. These fractal dimensions are consistent with models based on diffusion limited cluster aggregation. The fractal dimensions do not differ significantly between LT and HT sols at the same acid concentration. However, for both temperature regimes, the fractal dimension increases with increasing acid concentration, suggesting a progression to a more compact network. Static light scattering measurements indicate the Guiner radii of the cluster aggregates vary from 600 to 2000Å.
