Synthesis of mesoporous MCM-type bulks prepared by hydrothermal hot-pressing (HHP) method using MCM-type mesoporous powder was attempted. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), bulk density measurement, N2 adsorption-desorption isotherms and formaldehyde adsorption test have been employed to characterize the bulky products. As a result, we succeeded in preparing a dense and strong mesoporous bulks with high BET over 1000 m2/g through the hydrothermal hot-pressing method under appropriate conditions.
