Series of basic sulphates which were precipitated by the hydrolysis of Fe(OH)SO4 in the presence and absence of metallic iron were studied from compositional, crystallographic and thermal decomposition points of view. The results are presented and discussed. It was found that high pure iron oxides as well as high grade red iron oxide pigments can be obtained by agitating the basic sulphates in hot ammonical medium followed by roasting. Commercial exploitation of the results is suggested.
