Synthesis of Nanozeolite NaX and Optimization of the Method

Document Type : Research Paper




In this investigation we synthesized NaX-Nanozeolite by hydrothermal crystallization conditions.
These nanoparticles were prepared at different conditions in a temperature controlled shaker. The
synthesized zeolites were characterized by instrumental analysis methods, such as X-ray
diffraction (XRD), X-ray fluorescence (XRF), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and
transmission electron microscopy (TEM) techniques. The observed results showed particle size
between 20 to100 nm. Then we examined the influence of different parameters on particle size
such as reaction time, temperature and agitation. Crystallization with shaking at 60°C for 2 days
was the best conditions for synthesis of NaX-Nanozeolite.
