Positron annihilation lifetime, Doppler broadening measurements have been used to study microporous FER and MFI structures containing framework subtituted iron in different amounts. Mesoporous SBA-15 samples without and with iron introduced to the pore walls were also investigated by these methods. Mössbauer measurements have been accompanied to prove the extent of isomorphous incorporation of iron into the different structures. The results reveal a certain dependence of lifetimes on the various pore and channel sizes. Addition of iron does not influence significantly the observed lifetimes in FER microporous systems. However a slight decrease of lifetimes can be observed in the MFI samples. The effect of addition of iron in mesoporous SBA-15 system is more expressed. Supplement of iron also has an influence on the S parameter of Doppler broadening spectra.
