Raman Testing of Amorphous Silicates and Zeolites
Utilization of silica derivatives has been an ever evolving part of human civilization. Fitting the physical and chemical properties of these materials to the needs of diverse applications involves much analysis. In this presentation I will show examples for utilizing Raman spectroscopy in materials characterization related to the manufacturing of alkaline silicates, silica gels, and zeolites.
First our operando Raman test of the glass dissolution process will be presented, which helped to understand the formation of dissolved alkaline silicate molecules. Next I will show how Raman could help in distinguishing between the structures of these dissolved molecules. I will also show examples for utilizing Raman for differentiating between the fine structures of differently made zeolites. The final example will demonstrate how Raman spectroscopy could contribute to the discovery of the molecular basis of macroscopic silica gel morphology.
