Abstract

A reliable and apparent method based on diffuse reflectance FT i.r. spectroscopy (DRIFTS) for the quantitative determination of clinoptilolite in natural zeolites has been developed. The technique provides a simple and time-saving analysis of the minerals when compared with the powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) method and/or the conventional pellet preparation i.r. technique. Because of the complex structure of the natural minerals, the reliability of the analysis is improved further by combining the XRD and DRIFTS methods. In this study, the clinoptilolite concentration of natural zeolites mined in the US and Hungary was determined by both techniques. The results were compared, and good agreement was found.
