The effect of molecular additives on silicalite-1 cystallization is investigated in this research using a combination of optical microscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to examine changes in crystal aspect ratio. Although various silicalite-1 synthesis procedures have been explored, the effect of organic amines on the crystal structure of zeolites has not been investigated in depth. Molecular additives were used as tailored inhibitors in the hydrothermal synthesis of silicalite-1 crystals. This study revealed the potential influence of inhibitors on the dimensions of silicalite-1 crystals.
