Crystal Structure of an Acetylene Sorption Complex of Dehydrated Fully Mn(Ⅱ)-Exchanged Zeolite X
Myung Nam Bae, Yang Kin
The crystal structure of an acetylene sorption complex of dehydrated fully Mn(Ⅱ)-exchanged zeolite X, Mn46Si100Al92O384·30C2H2 (a=24.705(3) Å) has been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction techniques. The structure was solved and refined in the cubic space group Fd3 at 21(l) ℃. The complex was prepared by dehydration at 380 ℃ and 2 x 10-6 Torr for 2 days, followed by exposure to 300 Torr of acetylene gas for 2 h at 24 ℃. The structure was refined to the final error indices, R1=0.060 and R2=0.054 with 383 reflections for which I > 3σ(Ⅰ). In the structure, Mn2+ ions are located at two different crystallographic sites; sixteen Mn2+ ions at site I are located at the centers of the double six rings and thirty Mn2+ ions are found at site Ⅱ in the supercage, respectively. Each of these latter Mn2+ ions is recessed ca. 0.385(2) Å into the supercage from its three-oxygen plane. Thirty acetylene molecules are sorbed per unit cell. Each Mn2+ ion at site Ⅱ lies on a threefold axis in the supercage of the unit cell, close to three equivalent trigonally arranged zeolite framework oxygen atoms (Mn(Ⅱ)-O=2.135(9) Å) and symmetrically to both carbon atoms of a C2H2 molecules. At these latter distances, the Mn(Ⅱ)-C interactions are weak (Mn(Ⅱ)-C=2.70(5) Å), probably resulting from electrostatic attractions between the divalent cations and the polarizable π-electron density of the acetylene molecules.
