Zeolites Fit For A Crown: Probing Host-Guest Interactions with Thermogravimetric Methods

preprint
submitted on 06.12.2018 and posted on 07.12.2018 by Asel Sartbaeva, Paul R. Raithby, Remi Castaing, Antony Nearchou
Through 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.
