Abstract

Purely siliceous mesoporous [Si]-MCM-41 has been aluminated using an aqueous solution of sodium aluminate, NaAlO2, to form [Si,Al]-MCM-41 with the framework Si/Al ratio as low as 1.9. 27Al and 29Si magic-angel-spinning (MAS) NMR show that all aluminium is incorporated in the framework. The well resolved X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern of calcined [Si,Al]-MCM-41 indicates that the mesopore system is stable and that the channel diameter decreases with the increased degree of incorporation of Al. The intensity of lines corresponding to Si(nAl) building blocks in the 29Si MAS NMR spectra reflect changes in the local atomic arrangement upon alumination. Increased reaction temperature at a constant concentration of NaAlO2 enhances the efficiency of the alumination, but increased concentration at constant temperature disrupts the framework structure. Upon treatment with a concentrated (>1 mol 1–1) solution of NaAlO2 at moderate temperatures (100 ± 20 °C), [Si]-MCM-41 is transformed into crystalline zeolite Na-A.
