Hydrothermal Synthesis And Characterization Of Zeolite Naa From Corncob Ash
Zeolite NaA is synthesized using corncob ash (CCA) by hydrothermal synthesis in various weight ratios of
ash:NaOH at 300oC for 12 hours of curing time. Elemental analysis (ICP), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform
infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA), and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM),
characterized the initial CCA and the final zeolite NaA samples.
