Abstract

After a historical survey, the present status of research on thermodynamic aspects of ion exchange in Italian natural zeolites, namelyphillipsite, chabazite and clinoptilolite, is reported.Equilibrium data relative to exchange reactions between these zeolites and various toxic and noxious cations, namely Cd2+, Pb2+,Cu2+, Zn2+, Cs+, Sr2+, Ba2+, Co2+, NHþ4 , and two representatives of alkaline and alkaline-earth cations, such as K+ and Ca2+, are criticallyreviewed. Exchange isotherms and the most relevant thermodynamic quantities, such as the equilibrium constant Ka and the standardGibbs free energy DG0, are reported. Furthermore, the exchange isotherms are interpreted in terms of selectivity of one cation overanother, and the selectivity series are analyzed in the light of the Eisenman–Sherry theory and on the basis of the structural features ofthe various zeolitic terms. Eventually, a thermodynamic model recently proposed as a tool to predict either the ion exchange behaviour ofa zeolite for varying compositions of the aqueous phase, or the equilibrium behaviour of multicomponent systems based on the experimentaldata relative to binary systems, is discussed.
