Syntheses of Bulky Y-Zeolite by Hydrothermal Hot-Pressing (HHP) Technique
Synthesis of bulky Y-zeolite was attempted by a hydrothermal hot-pressing (HHP) method. These bulky products synthesized under hydrothermal conditions were identified as Y-zeolite single phase. Especially, bulky Y-zeolite having translucency, high density and large surface area was obtained by HHP treatment at 423K for 2h with 17wt% of 5M-NaOH solution. This solidified zeolite like single-crystal was considered to be made by dissolution and precipitation mechanism. High-density bulky zeolites can be expected as novel molecular sieves and catalysts with high activity.
