The preparation of MCM-41 mesoporous materials having good crystallinity and possessing adsorption features was carried out. The sample was evacuated at 301 k for 4 h under a pressure of 1 mPa and the measurements of the adsorption isotherms of were carried out volumetrically. The results showed that the MCM-41 thus prepared possessed excellent resistance to water, and its structure survived even after treating it in boiling water for more than one week.
