ABSTRACT:
Properties of anosovite in titanium slag, anosovite flotation response in a collector solution of sodium oleate, and adsorption behaviour of sodium oleate on the mineral surface were studied in the present work using XRD, Raman spectra, flotation tests, zeta potential analysis, FTIR and XPS. The results show that the anosovite crystal contains magnesium, and its chemical composition is Mg0.09Ti2.91O5. The chemical bonds on the anosovite surface mainly comprise Ti-O bonds. Micro-flotation tests indicate that anosovite has better floatability at a wide pH range and the recovery reaches 88% at pH=6, when the dosage of sodium oleate is only 4·10−6 mol/dm3. The point of zero charge of anosovite was determined near pH 3.2 by the zeta potential measurement. In the flotation process, chemical adsorption occurs between the carboxyl of sodium oleate and the titanium sites on the anosovite surface.
