The thermal behavior of Na-as synthesized and NH4 exchanged samples of ECR-1 has been studied by synchrotron radiation powder diffraction. The temperature resolved experìments were performed in capillary using a translating imaging piate System. The aim of this study is to follow in sifu thè dehydratìon mechanism of thè zeolite ECR-1, in its as-synthesized and NH4-exchanged forni in order to determine its thermal stability and whether thè structure undergoes phase transition during dehydration. The as-synthesized sample is stable up to 715 °C, whereas the NH4-exchanged one is stable up to 925 °C. Cell parameter refinements show a total volume decrease of 0.95% for thè as-synthesized phase and of 3.82 % for thè NH4 form.
