Preparation of Centimeter-Sized Zeolite Crystals by Hydrothermal Seeded Growth


Centimeter-sized crystals of pyridine dodecasil 3C (all silica zeolite ZSM-39) have been prepared using hydrothermal seeded growth techniques and characterized by differential scanning calorimetry, nuclear magnetic resonance, optical microscopy and powder X-ray diffraction.
