Compositions and methods for preparing mesoporous materials from low Si/Al ratio zeolites. Such compositions can be prepared by acid wash and/or isomorphic substitution pretreatment of low Si/Al ratio zeolites prior to introduction of mesoporosity.


Patent
Rive Technology | Date: 2015-12-11

Methods for introducing mesoporosity into zeolitic materials are described herein that employ an acid treatment, an optional surfactant treatment, and a base treatment without filtration or purification steps between the steps. In particular, the process generally involves subjecting a zeolitic material to an acid treatment followed by a surfactant treatment and base treatment. The methods can efficiently introduce mesoporosity into various zeolitic materials, such as zeolites.


Compositions and methods for introducing mesoporosity into inorganic materials in the presence of a non-ionic surfactant are disclosed herein. Mesopores can be introduced into inorganic materials, such as zeolites, by treating the inorganic materials with a non-ionic surfactant. The resulting mesoporous inorganic materials can have a total 20 to 135 diameter mesopore volume of at least 0.05 cc/g and a crystalline content of at least 20 weight percent as measured by X-ray diffraction.

Mesoporous X and A zeolites and methods for production thereof are disclosed herein. Such mesoporous zeolites can be prepared by contacting an initial zeolite with an acid in conjunction with a mesopore forming agent. The initial zeolite can have a framework silicon-to-aluminum content in the range of from about 1 to about 2.5. Additionally, such mesoporous zeolites can have a total 20 to 135 diameter mesopore volume of at least 0.05 cc/g.


Compositions and methods for introducing mesoporosity into zeolitic materials employing sequential acid, surfactant, and base treatments are disclosed herein. Mesopores can be introduced into zeolitic materials, such as zeolites, by treatment with an acid and surfactant followed by treatment with a base. The resulting mesoporous zeolitic materials can have a total 20 to 135 diameter mesopore volume of at least 0.05 cc/g. Additionally, the resulting mesoporous zeolitic materials can have a total 0 to 20 micropore volume of at least 0.10 cc/g.


Methods for introducing mesoporosity into zeolite materials that employ an acid pretreatment step are provided. By utilizing a non-acidic chelating agent during the acid treatment step, the zeolite material can be pretreated with a strong acid, often in higher concentrations or over shorter contact times, than had previously been contemplated. The resulting acid-treated mesoporous materials retain desirable properties, including Si/Al, UCS, and total mesopore and micropore volume. The ability to use a stronger acid without damaging the zeolite material results in a less expensive process capable of producing mesoporous zeolite materials suitable for a wide range of uses.
