Ordered nanoporous material involving microporous materials (ZSM-5) and mesoporous materials (MCM-41, Al-MCM-41, and SBA-3) has been successfully synthesized using extracted silicon by RHs as silicon source. Furthermore, heteroatoms such as Al and Ti species have been easily introduced into the mesoporous and microporous walls of MCM-41 and ZSM-5 by simple mixture of extracted silicon with aluminum or titanium source in initial reaction gel. This part of results from this period demonstrated that rice husks can be a good precursor for the production of high value added materials.
