New insights in the formation of silanol defects in silicalite-1 by water intrusion under high pressure

Abstract : The "water-silicalite-1" system is known to act as a molecular spring. The successive intrusion-extrusion cycles of liquid water in small crystallites (6 × 3 × 0.5 μm(3)) of hydrophobic silicalite-1 were studied by volumetric and calorimetric techniques. The experiments displayed a decrease of the intrusion pressure between the first intrusion-extrusion cycle and the consecutive ones, whereas the extrusion pressures remained unchanged. However, neither XRD studies nor SEM observations revealed any structural and morphological modifications of silicalite-1 at the long-range order. Such a shift in the value of the intrusion pressure after the first water intrusion-extrusion cycle is attributed to the creation of silanol groups during the first water intrusion. Detailed FTIR and solid-state NMR spectroscopic characterizations provided a molecular evidence of chemical modification of zeolite framework with the formation of local silanol defects created by the breaking of siloxane bonds.
