This work aims to reduce the prices of a wide range of nanomaterials which are unreachable in the industry by using natural sources as silicon and aluminum precursors. In a previous work, silicon and aluminum have been extracted from Volclay after applying the alkaline fusion process at 550°C, and a water treatment of this fused clay by adopting a weight ratio (1:4, fusion mass:H2 O) to synthesize Al-MCM-41 nanomaterials. In this study, the weight ratio of fusion mass:H2 O was increased to 1:8 to synthesize a highly structurally ordered MCM-41 under the same reaction conditions. The Al-MCM-41 nanomaterials are investigated by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP–OES), powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), N2 adsorption–desorption measurements and scanning electron microscopy (ESEM). As a result, the increase in the weight ratio fusion mass:H2 O generates more silica and aluminum, which allows the formation of well-ordered MCM-41 nanomaterials with high pore volume (0.70cm3/g), high surface area (1044m2/g), and uniform mesoporous diameter (3.67nm); as a consequence, the increase in the weight ratio fusion mass:H2 O leads to an increase in the mass of Al-MCM-41 (9.3g for 1:8 compared to 5g for 1:4), whereas the yield of production of mesoporous materials increases to 86%.
