Abstract

Polycrystalline samples of natural edingtonite (New Brunswick, Canada) and thomsonite (Oregon, USA) were studied up to 6 GPa using monochromatic synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction and a diamond-anvil cell with a methanol:ethanol:water mixture as a penetrating pressure-transmitting fluid. Unlike natrolite, previously studied under the same conditions, edingtonite and thomsonite do not show any apparent pressure-induced hydration (PIH) or phase transitions. All these fibrous zeolites are characterized by their anisotropic compressibilities, with the linear compressibilities of the fibrous chains (c-axis) being as small as one third of those perpendicular to the chains (a-, b-axes); for edingtonite, β0a = 0.0050(3) GPa-1, β0b = 0.0054(2) GPa-1, β0c = 0.0034(1) GPa-1; for thomsonite, β0a = 0.0080(2) GPa-1, β0b = 0.0084(2) GPa-1, β0c = 0.0032(1) GPa-1. The pressure-volume data were fitted to a second-order Birch-Murnaghan equation of state using a fixed pressure derivative of 4. As a result of the 0000-type connectivity of the chains, the bulk modulus of edingtonite is found to be about 40% larger than that of thomsonite; K0EDI = 73(3) GPa, K0THO = 52(1) GPa. Distance least-squares refinements were used to model the expected framework, following the observed linear compression behaviors. The chain-bridging T-O-T angle is proposed to be correlated with the different compressibilities across the chains in each framework type.
