In this paper, the effect of MgCl2 addition on the kinetics of MA spinel formation was investigated. For this purpose, the stoichiometric mixture of MgCO3 and calcined aluminum was calcined at 1100 °C for 1 hr. Then, the calcined composition was wet-milled and after addition of 6% MgCl2 the compositions were pressed and fired at 1300 and 1500 °C for different times. Spinel phase content was determined using semi-quantitative phase analysis. With regard to Jander's equation, the rate constant was calculated, and the activation energy was obtained from Arrhenius equation. The results showed that the addition of MgCl2 leads to the acceleration of the spinel formation reaction. Besides, 55.71 Kcal/mol as the activation energy was calculated for the composition containing 6 wt.% MgCl2 compared with 93.06 Kcal/mol for the composition without MgCl2.
