Investigation of inorganic porous solids as adsorbents for the separation of carbon dioxide from flue gas
(University of St Andrews, 2013-07-25) - Thesis,
Porous inorganic solids including mesoporous silicas, zeolites and silicoalumnio-phosphates have been investigated as adsorbents for carbon dioxide, particularly in relation to uptake from flue gases at 0.1 bar and ca. 298 ...
The location of active sites in microporous solids
(University of St Andrews, 2014) - Thesis,
The location of heteroatoms within porous materials was examined in chosen zeolite and zeotype materials. For zeolites, the substitution of aluminium (mainly, but also gallium and boron) for silicon was examined in ...
Exploiting isotopic enrichment for a solid-state NMR investigation of “ADORable” zeolites and breathing metal-organic frameworks
(University of St Andrews, 2018-06-27) - Thesis,
This thesis combines synthetic studies for isotopic enrichment with solid-state characterisation techniques to investigate two classes of microporous materials: zeolites and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). These materials ...
Synthesis and characterization of crystalline microporous materials : investigation of new synthetic routes
(University of St Andrews, 2014-12-01) - Thesis,
Conventionally, crystalline microporous materials such as zeolites and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are synthesized through the hydrothermal route or the trial-and-error approach. Other synthetic strategies may lead to ...
