Silicalite-1 formation in acidic medium: synthesis conditions and physicochemical properties

Abstract : Zeolites are the catalytic materials that are widly applied in the processing of conventional and renewable fuels and chemicals. The present study provides a comprehensive analysis of the factors controlling the acidic medium synthesis of high silica silicalite-1 zeolite. The effect of various silica sources (TEOS, fumed and colloidal silica) and alkali metal cations (Na and K) on the silicalite-1 formation is studied. The efficiency of different types of seeds (micron-sized, nanosized, and silicalite-1 amorphous colloidal precursor) on the silicalite-1 crystal growth kinetics and crystal size formed under acidic conditions is also investigated. Further, the zeolite crystallization kinetics under acidic, neutral, and basic conditions is compared. The obtained highly crystalline samples are used to compare the physicochemical properties of zeolites synthesized in acidic, neutral, and basic medium. Thus, the crystallinity, thermal stability, and local order in silicalite-1 samples synthesized in the (2-12) pH range are evaluated.
