Title: The Influence of Reactants and Al/Ga/Si Ratios on the Synthesis of CGS Structured Zeolites

Abstract

ECR-9 (CGS) zeolites have been synthesized from gallosilicate and gallo-aluminosilicate gels at between 100 {sup o}C and 220 {sup o}C using several Al and Si reactant types. Aluminum was substituted for gallium in the framework at levels up to 20% in seeded syntheses, but higher Al substitutions promote the crystallization of impurities. This is the first report of a gallo-aluminosilicate CGS composition. We successfully used the Simulated Framework Annealing method to solve the structural topology as if ECR-9 was a novel gallosilicate. The structure was refined using Rietveld full profile analysis (wRp = 14.6%) of powder synchrotron X-ray diffraction data.

  • A novel gallosilicate framework was reported by Krutskaya et al. while studying the phase diagrams of the K{sub 2}O-Ga{sub 2}O{sub 3}-SiO{sub 2}-H{sub 2}O system at 200 C. This material apparently had no aluminosilicate analogue and was named TsG-1. Although the cell parameters and the water sorption properties of this material were described, the structure of TsG-1 was not reported. The authors report here the structure of microporous TsG-1.
  • At low coverages, hydrogen sulfide adsorbed dissociatively on the faujasite-type X and Y zeolites; the amount of dissociation was proportional to the number of unlocated sodium ions in the supercages; the dissociated hydrogen produced hydroxyl groups with IR bands at 3650 and 3580 cm/sup -1/, which exhibited, at least in part, Broensted acidity. The SH groups gave IR bands at 2560 cm/sup -1/. Dissociative hydrogen sulfide adsorption decreased with increasing silica-alumina ratio and was negligible at ratios above 2.5:1. Nondissociative physical adsorption increased with increasing pressure, adsorbate coverage, and silica-alumina ratio. Preliminary oxidation rate studies of adsorbed hydrogen sulfide showedmore » that the process is, at least initially, controlled by intracrystalline diffusion on Linde NaY zeolite; the rate decreased much more with time on NaX than NaY zeolite.« less
  • This study is an investigation of various adsorbates (water, hexane, and benzene) applied to several kinds of zeolites (Y, mordenite, and ZSM-5). The adsorption of water, hexane, and benzene is evaluated as a method of measuring the eternal surface areas of zeolites.
  • A series of sodium-exchanged Y-zeolites with different Si/Al ratios have been prepared from the proton and ammonium ion forms of Y-zeolite(faujasite) by means of a solution ion exchange. The prepared catalysts have been characterized by the various analytical techniques and the NOx conversion rates of the catalysts were measured with non-thermal plasma assisted catalytic system. Specific surface areas measured by the BET increased in the order of the NaY series 708, 712, 100, 720, 760. The results of the elemental analyses showed that the Si/Al ratio of the catalysts increased gradually in the order of NaY 100, NaY 712, NaYmore » 720, NaY 760, NaY 780.« less
  • This paper examine the dependence of the Raman spectrum of the faujasitic family of zeolites on the Si/Al ratio. The vibrational spectrum of the completely siliceous faujasite is consistent with those of other silica polymorphs. Based on the correlation between the prominent Raman bands and the T-O-T angle, the strong, sharp bands at 488 and 510 cm{sup {minus}1} in the completely siliceous faujasite correspond to average Si-O-Si angles of 141{degree} and 147{degree}. For the framework with Si/Al = 1.0, the four bands in the 900-1250-cm{sup {minus}1} region are assigned to the Si-O stretching vibrations of Si attached to the fourmore » different oxygens of the framework. At intermediates Si/Al ratios, bands in the 900-1250-cm{sup {minus}1} region show an increase in frequency as the Si/Al ratio increases.« less
