Title: Consequences of exchange-site heterogeneity and dynamics on the UV-visible spectrum of Cu-exchanged SSZ-13

Abstract

Theory and experiment reveal relationships between observed UV-visible spectra and ion exchange site types, ion nuclearity, and finite-temperature dynamics in Cu exchanged chabazite (SSZ-13) zeolites.
