Abstract  

Alumina, zirconia and titania pillared montmorillonites additionally modified with silver were tested as catalysts of NO reduction with NH3 or C2H4. Ammonia was much more effective reducer of NO than ethylene. The silver containing TiO2-pillared clay has been found to be the most active catalyst for NO reduction both with NH3 or C2H4. Oxidation of the reducing agents by oxygen limited the NO conversion in the high temperature region. The ammonia and nitric oxide adsorption sites were studied by the temperature programmed desorption methods (TPD).

Abstract  

The selective uptake of strontium by a specially tailored aluminum pillared montmorillonite was investigated. Selective exchange kinetics revealed a fast component of the order of less than one hour, while exchange isotherms revealed the preference for strontium uptake over sodium and calcium with separation factors α Na Sr =50 and α Ca Sr =2. In an environment of rumen liquid taken from slaughtered sheep, 26% of strontium was removed by 1 g and 40% by 3 g of material.

Abstract  

The methods of PIGE and XRF were used to determine the elemental composition and the structural formulae of a specially tailored PILC material during the steps of its preparation. The CEC, a crucial property for the characterization of a cation exchanger, was monitored through all stages of preparation. In addition, the charge carried by the pillars, a critical quantity of the pillaring process, was estimated. Exchange isotherms of strontium and cesium were performed through the use of radiotracers' exchange isotherms of137Cs and85Sr with typical ψ-ray spectroscopy. These isotherms were of the Langmuir type and PILCs adsorption capacity was determined. The latter property was compared with the CEC determined by the elemental analysis and was found equal to the amount of the exchangeable interlamellar sodium ions.

Abstract  

Emanation Thermal Analysis (ETA), based on the measurement of the release of radon from previously labelled samples, has been used for 'in-situ’ characterisation of the morphology changes of intercalated montmorillonitic clay. The thermal behaviour of hydroxyaluminium intercalated montmorillonite was monitored in course of the preparation of alumina pillared montmorillonite, making possible to determine optimal temperature for the isothermal treatment of the intermediate product. Moreover, the thermal stability of alumina pillared montmorillonite porous structure was determined from the ETA data. A good agreement of ETA data and surface area, XRD patterns. DTA, and TG resulted was found.
