TG curves of as-prepared MCM-41 synthesized from three subsequent cycles: (a) M-1, (b) M-2, and (c) M-3. Figure S2. Infrared spectra of fresh CTABr (black) and CTABr recrystallized from waste mother liquor (red). The presence of -OH bands at 3,375 and 1,630 cm−1 in recrystallized CTABr are due to the adsorption of moisture from environment. (DOCX 91 kb)
