Layered and Framework Silicates in Mineralogy and Technology
Lecturers: Michael Fischer, Christoph Vogt
Introduction Crystal chemistry of layered silicates Layered silicates in nature Technological applications of layered silicates Zeolites and other framework silicates - An overview Crystal chemistry of zeolites Natural zeolites Synthesis and characterization of zeolites Zeolites, zeotypes, and other ordered porous materials Applications of zeolites I: Ion exchange Applications of zeolites II: Adsorption Applications of zeolites III: Catalysis Computational modelling of zeolites Exam preparation
- The students understand the key structural features of layered silicates and zeolites and know about their geological relevance.
- The students understand important applications of these materials, and they can explain how the microscopic structure determines the macroscopic properties relevant for these applications.
There will be a graded exam covering the fundamentals and applications of layered silicates and zeolites.
- Slides will be distributed during the course
