Zeolites, often described as "molecular sieves", are microporous crystalline solids with well defined structures. They have been used across numerous commercial applications, due to their unique porous properties (e.g. as adsorbents for industrial separations and purifications) and their ability to promote a diverse range of selective catalytic reactions in the internal cavities of the material.
In this study, Johnson Matthey used in situ powder diffraction at Diamond to measure the CO2 adsorption properties of merlinoite zeolite (MER topology Na and Cs-forms), and determine the structural response to dehydration.
The results of this study will help to inform the reduction of CO2 emissions.
