An examination of the structural, morphological and mineralogical features of Turkish perlite sample was carried out by FT-IR, SEM, SEM-EDX, XRD, TGA and N2-adsorption-desorption analytical techniques. Perlite is a natural, silica enriched igneous rock. This article features the primary step of study of basic characterization of perlite to investigate its utilization in different areas. Higher silica and alumina content was shown by EDX analysis. Both XRD and FT-IR studies reveal the presence of amorphous silica in perlite. TGA and LOI analysis illustrate the presence of water in the sample. The irregular morphology was exposed through SEM images. It was evident from the results that silica-enriched perlite could be developed further into a potential material in several area including catalyst synthesis by using various activation techniques.
