Enhanced mechanical strength of zeolites by adsorption of guest molecules

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report a molecular simulation study of the mechanical properties of microporous zeolites filled with guest molecules. We show that the adsorption of molecules in the micropores of the material increases its bulk modulus. These results provide a microscopic picture of the deactivation of pressure-induced amorphization by incorporation of molecules.
