Gas Porosimetry by Gas Adsorption as an Efficient Tool for the Assessment of the Shaping Effect in Commercial Zeolites

Abstract : A set of three commercial zeolites (13X, 5A, and 4A) of two distinct shapes have been characterized: (i) pure zeolite powders and (ii) extruded spherical beads composed of pure zeolite powders and an unknown amount of binder used during their preparation process. The coupling of gas porosimetry experiments using argon at 87 K and CO2 at 273 K allowed determining both the amount of the binder and its effect on adsorption properties. It was evidenced that the beads contain approximately 25 wt% of binder. Moreover, from CO2 adsorption experiments at 273 K, it could be inferred that the binder present in both 13X and 5A zeolites does not interact with the probe molecule. However, for the 4A zeolite, pore filling pressures were shifted and strong interaction with CO2 was observed leading to irreversible adsorption of the probe. These results have been compared to XRD, IR spectroscopy, and ICP-AES analysis. The effect of the binder in shaped zeolite bodies can thus have a crucial impact on applications in adsorption and catalysis.
