Polycrystalline analcime film was prepared from hydrogels under hydrothermal conditions. The analcime film of about 200μm thickness built up on a porous alumina support at temperatures above 160°C, and the size and crystallinity of analcime increased with temperature. The thickness of analcime film increased with incubation time, and the growth rate at 180°C was faster than that at 160°C. The analcime film obtained was thermally stable at temperatures up to 700°C, and no structural changes were observed after treatment in nitric acid solutions below 0.01M. Analcime had an ion-sieve ability to large sized Cs<SUP>+</SUP> ion, and Ag<SUP>+</SUP> and Rb<SUP>+</SUP> ions of small sizes were incorporated in analcime.
