In order to understand the coordination behavior of Al(III) ions in hydrosphere, discrete variational Xα molecular orbital calculations were performed to analyze Al K-edge XANES spectra for the aqueous solutions of Al(NO3)3·9H2O and Al-EDTA (EDTA = ethylenediaminetetraacetate) complex. As to Al(NO3)3·9H2O, the hydrate structure was presumed to be rather an asymmetric hexahydrated structure than an high-symmetric structure. As to Al-EDTA, the 5-fold coordinated Al-EDTA was concluded to be the coexistence of the pyramidal and trigonal bipyramidal structures in proportion of 4 to 6.
