Predicting gas transport in formed zeolite adsorbents from NMR studies.

The self-diffusion of nitrogen, methane, and carbon monoxide within a 5A zeolitic adsorbent has been examined with use of pulsed field gradient (PFG) NMR. In all cases, the diffusion process is well-described by a refined version of the long-range diffusion model (LRDM), adapted here for use with pelletized adsorbents, which uses exclusively adsorbent… CONTINUE READING
