  • 11 Å tobermorite ion exchanger from recycled container glass

    Waste container glass cullet has been evaluated as a feedstock material for the hydrothermal synthesis of tobermorite, a cation exchanger. Accordingly, it is demonstrated that essentially phase–pure 11 Å tobermorite, Ca5Si6O16 (OH) 2 · 4H2O, can be obtained from a stoicheiometrically–adjusted mixture of waste glass cullet and calcium oxide in aqueous sodium hydroxide at 100°C. A batch sorption ...
