Synthesis and Characterization of Large NaX Zeolite Crystals by Continuous Crystallization

Abstract:

Article Preview

NaX zeolite crystals of 50 µm were grown by a continuous crystallization with seed crystal (10 ㎛) in a mother solution having a 3.5Na2O : Al2O3 : 2.1SiO2 : 1000H2O composition. The seed crystal morphology of NaX zeolite shows that an octahedron is formed composed of 8 equilateral triangles which have an average lattice constant of a = 24.9911 Å with a SiO2/Al2O3 molar ratio of 2.1~2.4. In order to grow crystals of zeolite X to an appropriate size by the continuous method, the mother solution was supplied with various seed contents (3~20 wt%) in an autoclave at 90°C after 7, 12, 16, 19 and 24 days.
