Abstract

The objective of this project was to prepare iron incorporated ZSM-5 zeolites from silica gel beads using the hydrothermal treatment. A process for synthesizing these zeolites was developed, and zeolite beads containing a significant amount of iron were prepared. Samples were analyzed using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD). Recommendations for improvement of the process were discussed.
