Reversible sorption in the crystalline microporous semiconductor Rb-CTH-1
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2010
The sorption capacity of the recently reported crystalline microporous semiconductor Rb-CTH-1 was investigated, revealing that the structure demonstrates heat-induced reversible sorption of 3 wt% water and hydrocarbons. The Rb-CTH-1 structure maintains its crystallinity and semiconducting properties when heated to 150 degrees C. The treatment causes desorption induced irreversible rearrangements of the remaining guest species with a response in the semiconductive properties of the material. (C) 2010 Elsevier Inc.
