Relation of water adsorption capacities of zeolites with their structural properties

Relation of water adsorption capacities of zeolites with their structural properties
An investigation was carried out to determine the extent of relations between various structural properties of zeolite frameworks and their experimental water adsorption capacities. For this aim, average water capacity values were determined for different zeolite frameworks by utilizing water adsorption capacities reported in the literature for related materials. It was observed that the theoretical surface areas and volumes available for water adsorption in zeolites as well as the fractal dimensions of these materials exhibited some correlation with their experimental adsorption capacities. The results might give an indication of the potential for development of different zeolite frameworks, regarding their water adsorption capacities. Analogue materials of known zeolite framework structures, with different chemical compositions, which may allow for relatively high water adsorption capacities, may be prepared for such an improvement. The investigations may also be informative for the development of new zeolite-like adsorbents with relatively high capacities.
