ABSTRACT

An ionic liquid assisted strategy for the synthesis of zeolitic material is reported. This strategy is a solid state synthetic method and the ionic liquid is employed as structure directing agent. A TON-type zeolite, which contains one-dimensional 10-member-ring, is successfully synthesized with the assistance of the ionic liquid, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide. This finding improves our understanding about the challenge of ionothermally synthesizing siliceous and aluminosilicate zeolites.

Mentions: The SEM images of a pure TON zeolite sample (No. 7) are shown in Figure3. The products are prism-shape. The intergrowth morphology of the products (Figure3b) is possibly because of the very high concentration of the tetrahedral species in such an almost “solid-state” system. The particle sizes of the TON-zeolites are in the range of 10–50 μm. It is worth noting that the zeolite crystals, which are synthesized from this solvent free route are usually large.[38] Several zeolite materials were synthesized with the same prism shape but < 5 μm in length.[51,56] Zeolites with appropriate size bigger than 5 μm are needed in liquid continuous flow processes.[57] This ILA synthesis provided a facile route to prepare large zeolite crystals.
