Super-microporouos silicon material with high hydrothermal stability denoted as MCM-41-T has been prepared from mesoporous MCM-41 by high temperature treatment. The structural and chemical property of MCM-41-T has been characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, N2 adsorption-desorption, infrared spectroscopy and 29Si MAS NMR. The characteristic results show that Si–OH groups are forced to condense by high temperature treatment, and the pore size of MCM-41-T is around 1.5 nm in the super-microporous range. Compared with the original material MCM-41, the hydrothermal stability of MCM-41-T has been significantly enhanced.
