Purifying 'Al' using 'HF'

  1. Dec 1, 2008 #1

    As I was going through the properties of HF, I found that it is used to purify Al... which sounds very interesting to me... but unfortunately I wasn't able to find how this process is done...

    I will be really thankful if you could provide some information regarding this issue.

    Thanks in advance.
