We have studied the behavior of molecular water and carbon dioxide in the channels of cordierite and beryl at temperatures up to 900"C using high temperature infrared spectroscopy. Above 400'C water that is structurally bound in the channels begins partitioning into an unbound state with the characteristics of a gas. The process is fully reversible and… (More)
