Zeolite particles were synthesized through in-situ extraction of silica from rice husk ash without seeding method in the absence of organic template by a static hydrothermal condition at 100oC/24h at varied ageing 8-24h. The effect of amorphous silica content on ageing time of synthesis products was evaluated with X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and field emission microscopy (FESEM). The present of zeolite Y without seeding method by XRD analysis show a mixture of zeolite A, Y and P. The transformation of amorphous rice husk particle gradually increased as early at 8 hours in ageing and increased with increase in ageing reaction. The vibration bands at around 974 cm-1 indicated Si-OH vibrations of the surface silanols, which is the characteristic of mesoporous silica. The FESEM images showed cubic-shaped morphology of the powders increased with increase in ageing reaction.
