Silicate mesoporous materials are of the main interesting adsorbents for decreasing of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from crude oil. In this work zinc impregnated highly ordered MCM-41 was synthesized via post-synthesis functionalization and was used as adsorbent for removal of H2S from crude oil. Also the variation of solvents was mainly adjusted. In order to determine the ideal solvent for the synthesis of zinc incorporated MCM-41, a few solvents (water, ethanol and THF) has been tried in these experiments. The experiments showed that THF is a better solvent to get better materials.
