Sažetak

Among the parameters that influence the outcome of a hydrothermal synthesis of molecular sieve zeolites, the effects of various silica sources are some of the least understood. Prior studies have noted that some silica sources were »active,« or »inactive,« and there have been some suggestions that aluminium impurities can contribute to a silica source’s »activity« to promote certain zeolite syntheses. However, a silica source’s activity toward promoting zeolite crystallization has not been definitively shown to be linked to any specific impurity in the silica. This study reports on the use of four different silica sources and the corresponding distribution of Na, Al, and Si between the supernatant and amorphous gel phases. It is shown that the distribution of these species was unaffected by the choice of the silica source, but did vary with batch composition. Furthermore, the degree of silicate polycondensation (DPS), measured by the molybdate method, did not vary with the choice of the silica source. The observed differences in particulate and structural properties of the products crystallized from four different silica sources were analyzed in terms of the critical processes of zeolite crystallization (gel dissolution, nucleation, crystal growth).
