The nanostructured hybrid AlMCM-41/ZSM-5 composite was synthesized starting from a hydrogel with molar composition SiO2:0.32Na2O:0.03Al2O3:0.20TPABr:0.16CTMABr:55H2O. The cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTMABr) and tetrapropylammonium bromide (TPABr) were used as templates. The above mentioned material presents morphological properties with specific characteristics, such as the surface area of the composite which is approximately half of the surface area of the conventional MCM-41. Another interesting feature is the formation of walls with the double of the density of the MCM-41 structure, which characterizes the hybrid material, resulting in a high stability material for catalytic application. The aim of this study is obtain optimized structures of the hybrid material and for this purpose variations in the synthesis time were carried out. A comparative analysis was performed including X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and Thermogravimetry measurements. The model-free kinetic algorithms were applied in order to determinate conversion and apparent activation energy of the decomposition of the CTMA+ and TPA+ species from the hybrid AlMCM-41/ZSM-5.
