Abstract [en]

Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy was applied to study paramagnetic species stabilized in Na-A zeolite exposed to gaseous methane and ?-irradiated at 77 K. Two types of EPR spectra were recorded during thermal annealing of zeolite up to room temperature. Owing to the results for the zeolite exposed to 13CH4 the multiplet observed at 110 K was assigned to a ?CH3?Na+ complex. After decay of the multiplet, the isotropic quartet of methyl radical was recorded in the temperature range of 170-280 K. On the basis of the EPR parameters it is postulated that ?CH3 radicals in this temperature region are able to freely rotate inside the zeolite cage. The structures of the ?CH3?Na+ adsorption complex and respective hyperfine coupling constants were calculated by applying DFT quantum chemical methods. Two different models were applied to represent the zeolite framework: the 6T structure of one six-membered ring and the 3T cluster. The hyperfine coupling constants calculated for the ?CH3?Na+ adsorption complex for both applied models show very good agreement with those obtained experimentally. © 2006 American Chemical Society.
