 The thermal behavior of SiO2-PEG/SiO2 xerogels was analyzed by using a temperature-programmed thermogravimertric method. The results showed the PEG in the xerogel had different thermal stability when the SiO2-PEG xerogel being heated under different atmosphere, and therefore influenced the textural properties. The apparent activation energy in different temperature stages was obtained from the DTG curves in N2. It indicated that the dehydroxyl reaction of SiO2 xerogel was kinetic-controlled, but, undergone the transition from kinetic-controll to diffusion-controll of the surface hydroxyl gradually with increasing temperature.
