abstract

  • A new 29Si solid-state MAS NMR experiment is described for investigating the framework structures of pure silica zeolites. The symmetry-based homonuclear dipolar recoupling sequence SR26411 has been incorporated into a two-dimensional NMR experiment to probe the Si-O-Si bonding connectivities and long-range Si-Si distances in zeolite frameworks. This dipolar recoupling sequence is shown to have a number of advantages over the J-coupling-based INADEQUATE experiment. For the clathrasil Sigma-2, it is demonstrated that there is excellent agreement between experimental double-quantum build-up curves obtained from a series of two-dimensional double-quantum correlation spectra and simulated curves which consider all Si-Si distances out to 8 A. This result suggests that this experiment could be used to solve zeolite frameworks with unknown structures.
