The aim of the present work was to combine different physicochemical techniques, namely X ray diffraction, IR spectroscopy,
and multinuclear (29Si and 27Al) solid-state NMR spectroscopy, to study the aluminum distribution and to determine the silicon–aluminum ordering in the
Y-zeolite framework when the latter was submitted to acid leaching (HCl, HNO3, H2SiF6). It was shown that all acids were effective in removing Al from the framework. Moreover, the extra-framework Al extraction
from the lattice was dependent on the nature and the concentration of the acid. After the dealumination treatment, different
species (silanol nest, six-coordinated non-framework Al) were detected. The investigation showed that the breakdown of the
parent Y-zeolite mainly depends on the degree of dealumination.
We have investigated the interaction of a few 5-ring organic compounds (cyclopentane, cyclopentene, furan, 2-methylfuran,
2,5-dihydrofuran and tetrahydrofuran) with alkali-metal cation-exchanged faujasites (LSX, X and Y types) by means of temperature-programmed
desorption (TPD). The desorption behavior at higher temperatures of all probe molecules on the sodium ion containing faujasites
with different Si/Al ratios reflects the higher cation content of zeolites with greater aluminum content. Only the desorption
profiles of tetrahydrofuran and 2,5-dihydrofuran show, depending on the kind of cation, additional desorption features at
higher temperatures. Using a regularization method, desorption energy distribution functions for furan and tetrahydrofuran
were calculated. The calculated desorption energy distributions clearly illustrate the very different adsorption behavior
of furan and tetrahydrofuran which leads to large differences in the binding energies between the corresponding adsorption

TPR method was used to elucidate the status of nickel ions in chrysoprase. Temperature profiles of chrysoprase samples were
interpreted by comparing them with TPR curves of references. Two kinds of nickel species were identified in the studied samples.
The first one is nickel in 2:1 layer silicates while the other is nickel in the extra-framework positions. Apparent activation
energies (853 and 205 kJ mol−1) which were obtained from TPR data support the above attribution.

Pure HEU-type zeolite (heulandite) crystals were allowed to interact with Sr2+ cations in aqueous solution. The powdered solid experimental products obtained from batch-type sorption experiments, using
solutions of Sr2+-concentrations between 10 and 1000 mg/l, were investigated using INAA, RI-XRF and SEM-EDS. The Sr uptake by the mineral which
can adequately be described with a Freundlich-type isotherm, varies from 3.14 to 6.22 mg/g. The distribution coefficients
increase progressively by decreasing the solutions concentration reaching a value of 1800 ml/g. The investigated zeolite interacts
with Sr2+ cations through ion exchange reactions and initial exchangeable Ca2+ cations are replaced into the structural micropores. However, in the best case, only ca. 43% of the theoretical CEC can be
covered because of the limited availability of the extra framework Ca2+ cations that can be removed from the lattice under ambient treatment conditions. The XPS investigation of Sr-loaded single
crystals indicated that adsorption of Sr2+ cations on the outer surface also occurs while surface precipitation phenomena must be excluded. Similar surface analyses
by means of12C-RBS showed that the Sr depth-distribution at near-surface layers is quite homogenous in contrast to a previous relevant
study revealing an intense surface Sr-accumulation on a natural Ca-zeolite of different structural characteristics (scolecite).
