Charge compensation of entrapped organic cations in zeolites

Organic Structure Directing Agents (OSDAs) play a central role in synthesis of zeolites. Typically, OSDAs consist in tetraalkylammonium cations that are trapped inside of the voids of zeolites. The positive charge of the occluded cations is compensated i) by the isomorphic substitution of Si atoms by trivalent atoms resulting in…
