PERGHER, Sibele B. C.; CORMA, Avelino and FORNES, Vicente. Preparation and characterization of MCM-22 zeolite and its layered precursor. Quím. Nova [online]. 2003, vol.26, n.6, pp.795-802. ISSN 0100-4042. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40422003000600003.
The layered precursor of MCM-22 was prepared with different Si/Al ratios: 15, 25, 50, 100 and ¥. Upon heat treatment these precursors form MCM-22 zeolite. Both layered precursor and MCM-22 zeolite were characterized by several techniques: Chemical Analysis by Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Thermo-gravimetric Analysis (TGA), Pore Analysis by N2 and Ar adsorption, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Infrared Spectroscopy (IR) and Temperature Programmed Desorption of ammonium (TPD).
