intensity of hydrothermal alterations and their influence on the rock properties. 1. INTRODUCTION The study of natural zeolites and their deposits are of great interest in science and technology and remain relevant nowadays due to the special properties of these minerals and their wide usage in
The sorption has been conducted on natural zeolites from different structural groups, i.e. chabazite, mordenite, ferrierite and clinoptilolite. The Na-forms of sorbents were exchanged with hexadecyltrimethylammonium cations (HDTMA +) and organo-zeolites were obtained. External cation exchange capacities (ECEC) of organo-zeolites were measured.
The low affinity of natural zeolites for anionic species results from negative charge of their crystal lattice, which provides sites for exchanging cations but not for anions. In contrast, surfactant-modified zeolites (SMZ) show significant sorption of all three oxyanions from aqueous solution.
The main target of presented research is to study alterations of volcanic rocks, to identify types and morphology of zeolites, to determine petrophysical properties of host rocks and to assess the effect of hydrothermal alteration on rock properties.
Applying zeolites to natural environment is important from the point of view of monitoring the toxic metals’ mobilization (Al(III), Mn(II), Cd(II), and Pb(II)) as well as microelements (Fe, Mn, Zn, and Cu). These elements influenced food chain and their deficiency as well as excess and determined plant quality and health of humans and animals.
1/1/2014 Three different zeolites (erionite, mordenite and natural clinoptilolite) were used to study influence of zeolite topology on the state of copper during ion-exchange and following reduction in hydrogen flow. This comparative study clearly demonstrates the influence of used zeolite matrices on the process of implantation of copper nanospecies.

Zeolites constitute one of the largest groups of minerals known with more than 50 distinct natural species recognized and more than 100 species having no natural counterparts have been synthesized in the laboratory [1, 2, 3]. Natural zeolites occur in a variety of geologic settings and
Natural zeolites are relatively cheap, safe, and environmentally friendly adsorbents. They also have a large surface area. Zeolites have great potential for many applications, for example molecular sieves, catalysts, adsorbents, surfactants, and for removal of cations
40 natural zeolites have been identified, some common ones include analcime, chabazite, clinoptilolite, erionite, ferrierite, heulandite, , subjected to refining through a process known as beneficiation using deionize waterThis process was done several times to ensure the elimination of impurities to a minimum especially quartz which is .
A true "Green" odor control product that is good for the environment. Zeolite is THE perfect approach to controlling odors. Zeolite Science Zeolite is a volcanic rock, a mineral produced over millions of years by nature as lava underwent alterations in alkaline waters and then crystallized.

Hence, the present study has been conducted to investigate the possibility of treating fluorinated water using zeolites. The capabilities of natural zeolites are attributed to their catalytic, molecular sieve, adsorption and ion-exchange properties which have been utilized in our laboratory experiment. The experiment was carried out in two phases.
The above knowledge of zeolites and other silicates led us to test the biological activity of natural clinoptilolite. Mechanical treatment of natural clinoptilolite was used to produce small-sized particles (MZ) that were tested for possible toxicity and anticancer activity in vivo. Here we provide evidence
Zeolites are porous minerals with high absorbency and ion-exchange capacity. Their molecular structure is a dense network of AlO4 and SiO4 that generates cavities where water and other polar molecules or ions are inserted/exchanged. Even though there are several synthetic or natural occurring species of zeolites, the most widespread and studied ...
About 40 natural zeolites are known ( Tschernich, 1992 ) . Most zeolites known to happen in nature are of lower Si/Al ratios, since organic structure-directing agents necessary for formation of silicious zeolites are absent. Sometimes natural zeolites are found as big individual crystals, though are really hard to do in the research lab.
Abstract. Yucca Mountain is being studied as a potential site in southern Nevada for an underground, high-level nuclear waste repository. A major consideration for selecting this site is the presence of abundant zeolites in Miocene ash-flow tuffs underlying the region.
In recent years, wastewater treatment using zeolite as a low-cost absorbent has been examined by many researchers. Zeolites, either natural or synthetic, can improve water quality and wastewater treatment by removing substances such as heavy metals, ammonium, phosphorus, COD, dissolved organic matter, cations, and radioactive elements .

of hydrothermal alteration assemblages and their zonal relationships in the field may provide important evidence that a terrane under assessment is favorable for occurrence of VMS deposits. Hydrothermal alteration varies widely from district to district and among individual deposits, and the literature on this topic is voluminous.
26/4/2016 Chemically modified natural zeolites have been associated with bactericidal effects on pathogenic organisms in the guts of birds. A reduction in mortality of broiler chickens and reduced viable counts of Salmonella enteritidis and Escherichia coli in the proximal and distal gut were associated with inclusion of zeolite in feed, .

Adding 5 and 12.5%w/w of natural zeolite to the rats’ feed improved short-term, medium-term, and long-term memory performance (P < 0.05) compared to the control group. Conclusion: observed improvement in memory function can be considered in part as the indirect effects of cation exchange or adsorption property of zeolites.
In zeolites, Mi generally increases with decreasing micropore width and increasing micropore hydrophobicity, but the effect of hydrophobicity is stronger. In both natural solids and zeolites, competition between TCE and PCE causes Mi for each sorbate in the mixture to be less than or similar to that for each sorbate alone.
