Ferrierite zeolite crystals were successfully prepared by a long amine as 1,8-diaminoctane (DAO) as organic structure directing agent. By comparison, shorter amine, i.e. ethylenediamine (EN), was also used as OSDA. Results shows that the presence of DAO reduces the crystallization time and allows to obtain single FER-type crystals with smaller size and higher acidity, being these significant parameters to take into account when zeolites are applied in catalysis. The obtained samples were characterised with XRD, TG/DTA, SEM, N2 adsorption/desorption, FTIR and 27Al-NMR. In particular, TGA clearly shows that DAO may be accommodate in zeolite framework and theoretical modeling suggests a preferential location in the 10-MR ring channels.
