Silicalite-1 particles with minimum twinning have been synthesized inside the polar core of non-ionic surfactant/co-surfactant-stabilized water-in-oil (w/o) type emulsions at 150 degrees +/- 1 degrees C within a short reaction time of 5 h. The non-ionic surfactants of varying hydrophilic-lipophilic balance (HLB) values, i.e. sorbitan monooleate (Span 80, HLB: 4.3), sorbitan monolaurate (Span 20, HLB: 8.6), polyoxyethylene (4) lauryl ether (Brij 30, HLB: 9.7) and polyoxyethylene sorbitan monooleate (Tween 80, HLB: 15), the cationic surfactant, i.e. cetyl trimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB), surfactant concentration, co-surfactant, synthesis temperature and time have been found to play significant role in controlling size and characteristics of Silicalite-1. It has been observed that the crystallinity and size of Silicalite-1 can be tailored by adjusting the interactions between the polar surfactant head groups at the w/o interface and the growing crystallographic surfaces (or silicate/TPA ions) in the aqueous medium of the emulsion.
