Thermal behaviour of pure LiN3, NaN3, CsN3 and their mixture with the respective LiY-FAU, NaY-FAU, CsY-FAU zeolite was investigated by means of thermogravimetry and IR spectroscopy. Thermodesorption of CO2 was applied to compare the basicity of the alkali ionexchanged Y zeolites. Two of the investigated systems, the NaN3/NaY-FAU and the CsN3/CsY-FAU gave single, well defined and reproducible azide decomposition features rendering these samples to apply as catalyst precursors for preparation of zeolite with basic character.

Mg-Al L(ayered) D(ouble) H(ydroxide) was prepared and its thermal behaviour was characterized by thermoanalytical methods
(TG, DTG, DTA), 27Al M(agic) A(ngle) S(pinning) NMR spectroscopy, X-ray diffractometry (XRD) and S(canning) E(lectron) M(icroscopy). Heat treatment
destroyed the layered structure, which could only be partially reconstituted by rehydration. On calcination mixed oxide with
the predominance of basic sites were formed. Pillaring the LDH with Fe(CN)64- anions was also performed. The material was characterized by XRD and BET measurements. Heat stability of the pillared substance
was investigated, too. Pillaring proved to be successful, however, decreased heat resistance was found in the intercalated
material relative to the guest LDH.
