Resumo

Glasses along the composition line 0.5Al(2)O(3)-xSiO(2) (1 a parts per thousand currency sign x a parts per thousand currency sign 6) were prepared via a novel sol-gel route using tetraethylorthosilicate and aluminum lactate as precursors. The structural evolution from solution to gel to glass is monitored by standard Al-27 and Si-29 nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopies, revealing important insights about molecular level mechanisms occurring at the various stages of glass formation. Under the experimental conditions reported, silica and alumina precursors undergo homoatomic condensation processes when the gel is heat treated at about 100 and 300 A degrees C, respectively, and only little heteroatomic co-condensation occurs in this temperature range. The latter is promoted only upon elimination of the residual lactate and water ligands upon annealing the gels above 300 A degrees C. Following calcination at 650 A degrees C, mesoporous glasses are obtained, having average pore diameter of about 3 nm and a surface areas near 500 m(2)/g. Si-O-Al connectivities are detected by Si-29 magic angle spinning (MAS)-NMR. Al-27 MAS-NMR spectra reveal aluminum in four-, five- and six-coordination. The spectra differ significantly from those of other sol-gel derived Al2O3-SiO2 materials prepared from different precursor routes, suggesting that the lactate route results in a higher degree of compositional homogeneity.
