Zeolite fiber, film, and monolith were prepared by using nanosize titanium silicalite (TS-1) crystals. Films and fibers of TS-1 zeolite were optically transparent, which might be important for advanced optozeolitic materials. A permeation result of gases on monolith indicates that the gas permeation is governed by the Knudsen mechanism. All types of TS-1 zeolites manufactured in this work are observed to be MFI structure with an orthorhombic symmetry. These results suggest that nanosize zeolites have potential to allow morphological design with applications for advanced functional materials.
