Sažetak
The course of hydrothermal crystallisation of aluminosilicates (zeolites) as well as their particular properties can be affected by many factors, which influence processes at molecular level, especially nucleation events. Using kinetic data (rate of crystallisation, rate of crystal growth) and crystal size distributions of zeolite A at the end of crystallisation, the kinetics of nucleation and distribution of nuclei within the gel matrix were determined. Zeolite A was obtained by hydrothermal treatment (at 80 C) of aluminosilicate hydrogels (3.05 Na2O Al2O3 1.91 SiO2 238.1 H2O) aged at 25 C for various times, ta = 0 to 209 h. We have found that the distribution of nuclei in gel matrix considerably changes with the time of hydrogel ageing. The nuclei formed during the precipitation of hydrogel are non-homogeneously distributed within the gel matrix and concentrated closer to the center of the gel’s particles, while the new nuclei are formed at the surface and sub-surface regions of gel’s particles. The appearance of large number of nuclei, at the moment when gel is almost completely dissolved, was observed for the first time. The influence of gel ageing on crystallisation course as well as the observed effects of crystals particulate properties are discussed. On the grounds of obtained data, the definition of the term ‘‘autocatalytic nucleation’’ was extended.
