Bandyopadhyay, Sanjoy (1998) Effect of variation of the size of CH3 and CH2 groups on cage-to-cage migration of n-butane in zeolite NaCaA. In: Chemical Physics Letters, 293 (5-6). pp. 378-382.
Configurational bias Monte Carlo (CBMC) technique has been employed to investigate the cage-to-cage migration of n-butane molecules in zeolite NaCaA. Three different sets of parameters for the size or diameter of methyl (CH3) and methylene (CH2) groups have been used and the simulations were carried out at a low sorbate concentration of one n-butane per alpha-cage of the zeolite. It has been observed that only a 5% change in size of CH3 or CH2 groups can drastically alter the cage-to-cage migration and hence the transport properties of n-butane in zeolite NaCaA.
