Zeolitic Materials Ion Exchange and Shape Selective Catalysis Angus P Wilkinson School of Chemistry and Biochemistry Georgia Institute of Technology Atlanta GA 303320400 Overview o Introduction 0 Zeolite structure 0 Zeolite synthesis 0 Zeolite application What is a zeolitic material o Zeolites are inorganic crystalline solids With small pores 120 A diameter running throughout the solid 0 They are aluminosilicate framework structures made from comer sharing SiO4 and A104 tetrahedra related structures can be made from AlPO4 and other compositions Building up zeolite structures sodalite or cage Secondary building units 41 651 52 5 1 1 4 41 5 3 Spiro 5 Fig 78 The various zeolite structures can be classi ed according to their secondary building units containing four or more tetrahedra the more common of which are illustrated here after Meier and Olsong The LTA framework Fig 72 for example can be constructed entirely by linking 4 4 units and see Table 71 Pentasil zeolites Fig 74 Projections along principal crystallographic directions of eight zeolite structures that contain 5ring units The structures drawn as straight lines connecting adjacent Tsites in each case are based on

dimensions leads to shape selectivity o There is a narrow range of pores sizes in the solid because the materials are crystalline crystalline gives better selectivity than non materials Pore sizes in

number of known organometallics many of which show unusual structural and bonding motifs We have an opportunity to expand out chemical horizons OThey can be very useful catalysts synthetic reagents precursors The 18 electron rule and stability OMany stable organometallic compounds obey the 18 electron rule That is they have 18 valence electrons on the metal 18 electrons corresponds to an inert gas configuration for the metal gtgt althernatively you can view this number as being associated with complete lling of the bonding orbitals but none of the antibonding orbitals 18 electron rule can be used to predict stability Electron counting 0T0 count the valence electrons break the molecule into fragments so that each fragment is neutral sum up the number of metal valence electrons the number of electrons from the ligands and the charge on the complex MnCO539 gtgt Mn contributes 7e SCOs contribute 106 and the charge 1e The total electron count is 18 e Examples 9 Do the following species obey the 18 electron rule 7 Fec06 R CH3CO5 7 FeCO4239 Hapticity 9 To use the 18 electron rule we have to know how many electrons a ligand contributes to the bonding O This is not always a xed number as many ligands can bind in more than one way to a metal center 9 The number of atoms in the ligand which are directly coordinated to the metal is referred to as the hapticity of the O

Exceptions to the 18 electron rule 9 It is quite common for compounds of the late transition metals to form stable l6 electron compounds These are usually square planar d8 species 9 It is also common to nd early transition metal compounds that have fewer than 18e 7 Metal is too small and electron deficient to accommodate enough ligands so that it can achieve 18 electrons Scope of the 18 electron

colinear Carbon 13 NMR of carbonyls O The 13C NMR of carbonyl complexes can tell you how many different environments are present if the molecule is not fluxional 7 Fluxional means that the COs or other groups exchange positions with one another rapidly 9 Many carbonyls are uxional 7 IR and Raman spectroscopy tell you about the structure at any one time gtgt They probe structure on a short time scale 7103912 see so you get a snap shot of What the structure is 7 NMR has a different much longer time scale and tells you about the time averaged structure Substitution reactions of carbonyls 0 Replacement of CO by another 2e donor say PPh3 can be carried out thermally or photochemically 7 This makes them versatile intermediates for the synthesis of other species 7 Can be enhanced by bubbling gas through the reaction to remove the CO 7 Photochemical approach can be very effective 0 The reaction usually occurs by dissociation of CO giving a solvated intermediate that then reacm

selection rules governing how probable intense a transition is going to be 9 As photons do not have spin they can not in general induce transitions that involve a change in spin S Hence transitions that involve a change in S are very weak spin forbidden 7 However this rule can broken if there is strong coupling between orbital and spin angular momentum spinorbit coupling and for heavy elements this coupling is large leading to some intensity for spin forbidden transitions Selection rules Laporte O The intensity of a transition depends on the symmetry of the 0 states involved For centrosymmetric species free ions and octahedral complexes 7 g 9 g transitions are forbidden u 9 u transitions are forbidden u 9 g and g 9 u transitions are allowed The above rules are the Laporte selection rules This means that all dd transitions in octahedral complexes are formally forbidden as they are g 9 g gtgt Hence all dd transitions in octahedral complexes are weak For tetrahedral complexes there is no center of symmetry and this selection rule does not strictly ap 1 gtgt d d transitions in tetrahedral complexes are typically stronger than those in octahedral complexes Why does symmetry mater 0 For a transition involving the absorption of a photon IR optical etc there must be a change in dipole moment on oin from the round to the excited state This occurs when the fol owing integral as a none zero value PI and 1412 are the ground and excited state W1 ljzd Z wavefunctions u is the dipole moment operator and the integral is over all space This integral can only be none zero if the function being integrated has a component With symmetry like that of the highest symmetry irreducible representation of the molecules point group As H transforms like the functions X y and z u symmetry for a centrosymmetric species this in practice means that you only observe a transition When PI and 1412 differ in symmetry With respect to being centrosymmetric g or anticentrosymmetric u as the overall product 1411 uwz must have g symmetry Selection rules CT bands OAS long as a charge transfer band does not Violate the no change in spin rule it is likely to be very strong as there no other demanding restrictions on its occurrence Vibronic coupling 9 If dd transitions in centrosymmetric complexes are forbidden by the Laporte selection rule why do we see them 7 Complexes undergo vibrational motion Some of these vibrational modes can distort the complex so as to remove its center of symmetry 7 Coupling between modes that break the center of symmetry and the electronic transition leads to the transitions being weakly allowed essentially we excite the complex to a final state that is both electronically excited and vibrationally excited in such as way that the vibration removes the center of symme ry gtgt This interaction is called vibronic coupling gtgt Vibronic coupling leads to the rather broad nature of most dd transitions o You excite into a range of

assembled surfactant structures In solution surfactants can self assemble to form micelles rods sheets and 3D structures 7 All of these can in principle be used as templates 7 Rod like surfactant aggregates have provided some of the most interesting structures A lot of work has been done exploring the formation of silicate structures using self assembled templates 7 Other inorganic oxides have

Control of pore size All the early work on mesorporous silicates was done using MeCH2n1NMe3 surfactants Increasing the chain length produces materials with bigger pores Swelling the surfactant assembly by the use of an organic additive such as trimethylbenzene also gives bigger pores After a material has been made the pore size can be reduced by modifying the interior surface In uence of
