By applying combination of mechanochemical and thermal treatment important materials that could be used in sensor and semiconductor technology as well in catalysis are obtained. High energy ball milling was applied to prepare powder samples by treating mixture consisted a) of Cu and ammonium exchanged zeolite A and b) of CuO and ammonium exchanged zeolite A. According to X-ray powder diffraction the mechanical treatment resulted in mixture of amorphous phase and low size crystal particles. After 3 h of milling the samples were isothermally treated at the appropriate temperature yielding crystalline mixtures with a dominant phase of CuAlO2. Thermal treatment of Cu-exchanged zeolite A resulted in a crystalline sample with dominant phase CuAl2O4.

    By measuring the ion concentration in a pressure-induced infiltration experiment on a hydrophobic Zeolite Socony Mobil-5, it is found that the nanopore wall has a strong ion repelling effect. When the initial ion concentration is relatively low, only water molecules can enter the nanopores. Once...

    The distribution of copper- and nickel-containing components in the pore space of HZSM-5 zeolite was quantitatively studied. It was found that the detailed distribution of a modifier in the micropore and mesopore volumes of the zeolite depends on both the chemical nature of the modifier and the...
