Abstract

The adsorption of carbon dioxide in silicalite and NaZSM-5 zeolite has been studied using new Monte Carlo software. In this program, sodium cations and framework are movable during the simulation. The calculated adsorption isotherms are in good agreement with the experimental results. The energy distribution of carbon dioxide over silicalite and NaZSM-5 shows that the increase of the adsorption energy for NaZSM-5 is mainly due the electric field generated by sodium cations.
