FAU (faujasite) belongs to the family of aluminosilicate molecular sieves defined by the formula \( \left|{\left(\mathrm{C}\mathrm{a}, \mathrm{Mg}, {\mathrm{Na}}_2\right)}_{29}{\left({\mathrm{H}}_2\mathrm{O}\right)}_{240}\right|\left[{\mathrm{Al}}_{58}{\mathrm{Si}}_{134}{\mathrm{O}}_{384}\right]-\mathrm{F}\mathrm{A}\mathrm{U} \)
