Synthesis and characterization of mesoporous silica: laboratory exercises for students

Marek Kosmulski, Edward Mączka


Synthesis and characterization of SBA-15 were proposed as a laboratory course: linked series of exercises for graduate students. The standard preparation method was modified to fit a typical schedule of students’ classes, that is, 3-hours units every second week. The properties of materials obtained by different students’ groups were compared with the properties of materials obtained by means of a standard method.


SBA-15; specific surface area; zeta potential;
