Diffusion of Water in a Zeolite Crystal


IT has long been known that minerals of the zeolite family show remarkable properties which indicate that certain constituents of the crystal lattice are movable. The exchangeability of cations lattices contain wide meshes, through which a migration of matter may very well be assumed to take place1.
