Standard Test Method for Determination of Relative Crystallinity of Zeolite Sodium A by X-Ray Diffraction
|Publication Date:||10 March 2003|
|ICS Code (Chemical reagents):||71.040.30|
This test method covers a procedure for determining the relative crystallinity of zeolite sodium A (zeolite NaA) using selected peaks from the X-ray diffraction pattern of the zeolite.
The term "intensity of an X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) peak" refers to the "integral intensity," either the area or counts under the peak or the product of the peak height and the peak width at half height.
This test method provides a number that is the ratio of intensity of portions of the XRD pattern of the sample to intensity of the corresponding portion of the pattern of a reference zeolite NaA. The intensity ratio, expressed as a percentage, is then labeled relative crystallinity of NaA.
