Description

General description

MCM-48 molecular sieves can be hydrothermally synthesized from sodium silicate, as the precursor. The crystal structure exists in the form of a truncated rhombic dodecahedral.

Application

Mesoporous silicas are inorganic materials having porous structures and find applications in chromatography, catalysis, drug delivery and imaging.

Packaging

5 g in glass bottle
