Alumina coatings were obtained by deposition of boehmite sol, with added polyvinyl alcohol or polyethylene glycol, on stainless steel foil by spray pyrolysis method. Characterizations of coatings were performed by SEM, XRD, XPS, AFM and S(BET) analysis. Alumina coating prepared with polyethylene glycol has improved resistance to surface area loss than coating obtained with polyvinyl alcohol. At elevated temperatures polyethylene glycol has preserved the morphology of alumina coating and prevents the diffusion of Fe from stainless steel substrate. Porous, foam-like aluminium oxide coating, consisted of accidentally distributed rings of alumina, was created from both additives. Such coating morphology, with a hierarchical porosity, has application in numerous catalytic processes.
