Abstract

The objective of this project was to prepare high-silica zeolite beads from amorphous silica gel through hydrothermal treatment. A process for doing this was developed and improved, and zeolite beads were prepared. Scanning Electron Microscopy was used to analyze and compare the samples prepared. Potential improvements that could be implemented in future work were discussed.
