What Is the Bayer Process? (with picture

The Bayer process is an industrial process by which bauxite is purified into alumina, or aluminum oxide. Bauxite contains the aluminum-bearing minerals boehmite, gibbsite, and diaspore. To extract these minerals and the alumina in them, the bauxite must be ground up into small particles and dissolved in sodium hydroxide, a caustic liquid.
