Abstract and Keywords
This article describes the synthesis, characterization and environmental applications of nanocrystalline zeolites. It begins by considering the use of nanocrystalline zeolites as building blocks in the preparation of hierarchical zeolite structures, followed by a discussion of the synthesis of silicalite-1 with systematically varied crystal sizes, along with the synthesis of nanocrystalline aluminosilicates, NaZSM-5 and NaY. It then looks at the various applications of nanozeolites and hierarchical zeolite structures for environmental catalysis, adsorption of volatile organic compounds and other environmental contaminants, selective catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxide, and decontamination of organic phosphorus and sulfur-containing compounds. It also examines the unique properties and reactivity of nanocrystalline zeolites and concludes by assessing their potential for future environmental applications.
Keywords: nanocrystalline zeolites, aluminosilicates, environmental catalysis, adsorption, volatile organic compounds, environmental contaminants, selective catalytic reduction, nitrogen oxide, decontamination, sulfur-containing compounds
