Abstract

A novel method using electrophoretic deposition (EPD) is proposed for the preparation of dense FAU type zeolite membranes. The precursor membranes deposited through EPD were transformed into continuous bodies without interparticle pores by hydrothermal treatment in reaction mixtures with molar ratio Na2O:Al2O3:SiO2:H2O = 8:1:12:360. It was found that the densification of the precursor membranes during the hydrothermal treatment was achieved via two reaction routes; one was crystal growth of FAU type zeolite seeds and the other was generation of FAU type zeolite particles in the interparticle pores from the reaction mixtures. The thus prepared FAU type zeolite self-supported membranes exhibited high performances with a selectivity of 20 in CO2/N2 gas separation.
