Abstract

The locally available rice husk is found to provide a good alternative source of highly active silica for the synthesis of zeolites. The present synthesis of zeolite Y using seed and feed gel method yields maximum crystallinity and rich in zeolite Y and which shows the absence of other impurities. This compared with preparation of zeolite Y seeding and without seeding ethods using commercial silica which yields a mixture of zeolite Y and P.

Keywords: Rice husk; Zeolite Y; Seeding method; Ageing method; Highly active silica.
