Title: Studying Two-Dimensional Zeolites with the Tools of Surface Science: MFI Nanosheets on Au(111)

Abstract

While surface science has provided fundamental insights into a variety a materials, the most used catalysts in the industry, namely zeolites, still remain a challenge. The recent preparation of two-dimensional versions of MFI zeolite frameworks and the possibility of their deposition on electrically conductive supports provides for the first time a viable strategy to perform detailed studies on industrially relevant zeolites using the vast toolkit of surface science. In this work we demonstrate the use of infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy (IRRAS) and synchrotron-based x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) to study these materials. Furthermore, polarization modulation IRRAS is used to study the adsorption of methanol and its effect in phonon vibrations of the zeolite framework. The possibility of using surface science methods, in particular under ambient pressure conditions, for the study of well-defined zeolites and other microporous structures opens new avenues to understand structural and mechanistic aspects of these materials as catalysts, adsorbents and molecular sieves.
