Aluminium sulphate (aluminum sulfate) is a chemical compound, which is primarily utilised as a coagulating agent in the purification of drinking water and wastewater treatment plants. It is miscible in water and also finds use in paper manufacturing. It occurs naturally in anhydrous form as a rare mineral millosevichite that can be often found, for example, in volcanic environments and on burning coal-mining waste dumps.
Aluminium sulphate can form many different hydrates, of which the hexadecahydrate is the most common. It is often referred to as alum or papermaker's alum in specific industries. Aluminium sulphate is sometimes utilised in the food industry as a firming agent and in animal feed as a bactericide. Aluminium sulphate may be utilised as a deodorant, an astringent, or as a styptic for superficial shaving wounds as well. It is a typical vaccine adjuvant that works by facilitating the slow release of antigen.
