The term silica-gel is derived from the manufacturing method, sol-gel, to produce this material. Two raw materials, sodium silicate and mineral acid, are used in a wet process to create a reaction in generating monomeric silicic acid. These monomers polymerize to generate primary silica particles, referred to as silica sol.
Sep 01, 2020 This is due to the SiO 2 reaction with water at lower pH values, which will produce the hydrated forms of silica which tend to polymerize and form silica gel. In fact, at high pH values, the silanol groups are charged negative which results in the formation of silica precipitates.
Overview of the manufacturing process. First, a reaction is induced between liquid sodium silica (liquid glass) and sulfuric acid, generating SiO2 and nH2O, in a reaction tank. The reaction conditions are selected to produce silica with different features such as different particle sizes, surface structures, and pore distribution. Next, the wet silica cake is dried, ground, and

Several materials have already been converted into a fibrous structure. Especially brittle materials like glasses, ceramics, graphite and rock showed high flexibility and vibration resistance in their fibrous state.
Sep 01, 2020 Due to the delayed gelation process of silica gel at higher pH values, it could be concluded that the formed silica gel at pH 8 which has the highest relaxation exponent value, is relatively soft. This is confirmed by the visual inspection of the formed silica gels at different pH values, shown in Fig. 1 .

Precipitated silica and colloidal silica are produced in the process shown in Figure 4.37.Since the original raw material is silicic acid sodium, relatively inexpensive SiO 2 particles are obtained. Precipitated silica ((a) in the figure) is not a single particle but rather a body of several precipitated particles.

Continued evaporation results in collapse of the framework of the gel, forming a dense, hard substance with less than 10% of the volume of the original gel. This is called xerogel (pronounced zeroGEL). In fact, 1980s-style hard contact lenses used to be manufactured by drying silica gels into lens-shaped silica xerogels.
Silica Gel has a surface area equal to 700m2/g. Only activated carbon has a higher surface area.
