Alums are a group of hydrated double sulfate salt of aluminum and another cation, such as sodium potassium or ammonium. Some alums occur as minerals, most importantly alunite. However, the most important alums – sodium, potassium and ammonium – are produced industrially. Alums are mainly used to produce aluminum hydroxide, important flocculating agent. They are also used in pickling, baking powder, fire extinguishers and astringents in medicine.
