Variations in coordination states of extra-framework iron are studied in low iron content ferrisilicates (Si/57Fe ≈ 200) during various in situ treatments. In Fe-LTA complete Fe3+ ↔ Fe2+ reversibility is observed. In Fe-MFI extraframework iron can be stabilized in Fe2+ state in spite of ambient oxidizing conditions (N2O, 620 K). Further, in Fe-MFI simultaneous stabilization of Fe2+ and Fe3+ may take place providing centres for redox catalytic processes.
