This paper focuses on the synthesis of NaY zeolite crystals by using microwave-hydrothermal (M-H) processing. NaY zeolites were synthesized from colloidal silica, sodium aluminate, sodium hydroxide and deionized water at 100°C, and some properties were studied. NaY zeolite crystals with high surface area, in the range of 439 to 716 m2/g, have been prepared at 100°C for 1 to 3 hrs. Compared to the formation of NaY zeolite via conventional-hydrothermal (C-H) treatment, the M-H treatment led to increased rate of formation by 3 to 4 times.
