With some dependency on structure directing agents (SDAs), pre-cursors, mineralizers, there are reports that MFI-type zeolites with various crystal shapes have been prepared [8,9,10,11,12,13].
by means of small additives and impurities, known as mineralizers, whose role is to inhibit the granules growth and the transfer of pores to the granules limit, where their elimination may continue until the wanted porosity is obtained.
The handbook provides a single source for understanding how aqueous solvents or mineralizers work under temperature and pressure to dissolve and recrystallize normally insoluble materials, and decompose or recycle any waste material.
further studies should concentrate on trying to obtain the so called "complete sintering" with positive effects on sintered basalt parts by using new thermical treatments in order to modify the crystalline structural arrangement, or by using mineralizers in order to inhibit granules growth and pore transfer to the granules limits.
