Carbon Nanotube Templated Growth of the Nano-Crystalline NaY Zeolite
FAU-type(NaY) zeolites nanocrystals have been synthesized through crystallization of gel in mesoporous system of carbon nanotubes(CNTS) with a internal diameter of 20~30 nm. Investigation by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), transmission electron microscope (TEM) shows that the nanocrystals possess the typical nanosized zeolites structural characteristics which is different from those of microsized zeolites.
