Rapid Crystallization of Zeolite for Potential Carbon Sequestration Applications
2013 Edward F. Hayes Graduate Research Forum. 27th
In this paper, we propose modifications to a typical hydrothermal synthesis of zeolite which leads to very rapid crystallization. Water is gradually removed from the reaction mixture leading to a highly concentrated, extensively nucleated supersaturated gel, with the water added back slowly to this gel, crystallization of high-quality zeolite takes place rapidly.
