Fast synthesis of nanosized zeolite is desirable for many industrial applications. An ultrafast synthesis of LTA nanozeolite by the organic-additive-free method in a two-phase segmented fluidic microreactor has been realized. The results reveal that the obtained LTA nanozeolites through microreactor are much smaller and higher crystallinity than those under similar ...
