Preparation of aluminium oleate

Preparation of aluminium oleate

60 g of potassium alum are disolved in 3600 ml of water.  The solution of 110 g white castile soap in 1800 ml of hot water is gradually added to the potassium alum solution and the mixture is warmed until the aluminium oleate separates. The mother liquor is decanted and aluminium oleat washed twice with hot water, using 3000 ml of water each time. To free aluminium oleate from water it must be melted in an evaporating dish by very gentle heat. The yield is about 100 g of a soft, white plaster, containing 5.86 % of aluminium oxide.
