Abstract

In order to sustain the inherent porous properties of loess, hydrothermal synthesis of mesoporous materials from loess was carried out under saturated steam pressure at 100-200°C for up to 24h. The experimental results showed that the curing temperature and time exerted a positive influence on the strength development, which was believed to be due to tobermorite formation. Moreover, during the hydrothermal process, a huge number of new mesopores could be formed within the matrix. Therefore a tough and mesoporous material could be produced from loess hydrothermally, which is expected to provide a good humidity regulating property.
