Abstract:Researchers have comprehensively characterized alkali- activated fly-ash (the residue) and ascertained its highly zeolitic nature. In order to evaluate its potential for application as an adsorbent for the decontamination of waste water, the decisive parameters have mostly been the cation-exchange capacity, the mineralogy and the morphology of the residue. However, a study of the pore characteristics (e.g., the size and volume) of such residues is still warranted to anticipate their contaminant transport and the diffusion phenomena as a type of geotechnical engineering material. In this situation, the present study demonstrates the evolution of pores in the fly-ash after alkali activation up to three steps, and simultaneously, its effects` on other characteristics (e.g., the specific gravity, specific surface area and the cation-exchange capacity) of three types of similarly synthesized residues (the first, produced by using a NaOH aqueous solution and the other two residues, the result of alkali activation using a NaOH spent solution, the filtrates). Based on N2 gas absorption isotherms and infrared transmittance spectra, residues obtained from the second and third steps, each involving 24 hours of treatment using filtrates of 1.5-M NaOH, are established to be significantly enriched in the finer meso- and micro-pores, respectively, in comparison with a pure and macro-porous zeolite 4A.

Title:Tvorjenje mezopor in mikropor v elektrofiltrskem pepelu zeolita s tri-stopenjsko aktivacijo
Abstract:Raziskovalci so izčrpno opisali lastnosti bazno aktiviranega elektrofiltrskega pepela (ostanek) in potrdili njegove zeolitske lastnosti. Za vrednotenje njegovih uporabnih možnosti kot adsorbenta za dekontaminacijo odpadnih voda, so odločilni parametri večinoma ionska izmenjalna kapaciteta, mineralogija in morfologija. Vendar je študija lastnosti por (t.j. velikost in volumen) takšnih ostankov, še vedno osnova za predvidevanje o njihovi sposobnosti transporta onasneževalcev in pojavu difuzije. Pričujoča študija prikazuje razvoj por pri treh vrstah podobno sintetiziranih elektrofiltrskih pepelov po bazni aktivaciji in istočasno ta učinek na ostale lastnosti, t.j. specifično gravitacijo, specifično površino in ionsko izmenjalno kapaciteto. Na podlagi N2 plinske absorpcije in infrardeče spektroskopije je dokazano, da so ostanki, pridobljeni v drugi in tretji stopnji aktivacije (vsak je bil v obdelavi 24 ur z uporabo filtratov 1,5M NaOH), bistveno obogateni z mezoporami in mikroporami v primerjavi s čistim in makro poroznim zeolitom 4A.
