Aluminium hydroxide oxide or aluminium oxyhydroxide, AlO(OH) is found as one of two well defined crystalline phases, which are also known as the minerals boehmite and diaspore. The minerals are important constituents of the aluminium ore, bauxite.[citation needed]

List of related compounds and minerals[edit]

The aluminium oxides, oxide hydroxides, and hydroxides can be summarized as follows:

  • aluminium oxide hydroxides
    • diaspore (α-AlO(OH))
    • boehmite or böhmite (γ-AlO(OH))
    • akdalaite (5Al2O3·H2O) (once believed to be 4Al2O3·H2O), also called tohdite
