X-ray diffraction study of dealuminized mordenites

  • 24 Accesses


  1. 1.

    In the process of dealuminization of synthetic mordenite, as a result of treatment with hydrochloric acid, the linear parameters of the crystal lattice (interplane distances) decrease to an average of 1% in the case of maximum dealuminization. However, peculiarities of the crystal structure of the mordenites, determined by the type of unit cell, remain unchanged in this case.

  2. 2.

    In the case of profound dealuminization, there is a gradual breakdown of the crystal lattice and partial amorphization of the zeolite.
