Valency changes of iron and tin in framework-substituted microporous and mesoporous molecular sieves (Fe-ETS-10, Fe-ZSM-5, Fe-AlPO-11, Sn-ZSM-12 and Sn-MCM-41) have been studied under reducing and oxidizing conditions by in situ Mossbauer spectroscopy. It is demonstrated that the structure of the host matrices strongly influences the stabilization and the oxidation state of the ions. Debye temperature, Θ(D), data also are estimated, they support the suggested structural assignment of various species.
