Title: Influence of Hydronium Ions in Zeolites on Sorption

Abstract

In presence of sufficient concentrations of water, stable hydrated hydronium ions are formed in inorganic solid acids such as zeolites. In their presence larger organic molecules can only adsorb in the pore volume not occupied by hydronium ions. In consequence, the available pore volume decreases proportionally to their concentrations. The higher charge density (the increasing ionic strength) induced by increasing hydronium ion concentration in zeolite crystalline induces higher activity coefficients of adsorbed substrates, weakening the interactions between the organic part of the molecules, favoring instead interactions with polar groups. The insight allows linking a collective property such as hydrophilicity and hydrophobicity of zeolites to specific interactions on the molecular level.
