a combination of thermogravimetry, mass spectrometry and differential thermal
analysis, we demonstrate for the first time that all four zeolites show
experimental differences in their host-guest interactions with 18C6. In
addition, we have estimated the kinetics of 18C6 decomposition, which is a technique that has not
been applied to zeolites previously. Using these findings as a toolkit, a more
rational use of OSDAs can be utilised to prepare designer zeolites.
Furthermore, the new methodologies presented herein can be applied to current
zeolites, such as MFI-type zeolites used in the petrochemical industry.
