A series of terbium- and europium-exchanged microporous-mesoporous zeolite Socony Mobil Five (MFI)-type materials such as Zeotile-1 and Zeogrid with varying Si/Al ratios was investigated using FTIR, PXRD, adsorption-desorption isotherms of N-2 at 77 K and time-resolved luminescence spectroscopy. Silylation of the lanthanides-exchanged Zeotile-1 and Zeogrid with hexadecyl trimethoxysilanes via post-synthesis grafting was also studied. The results showed that the lanthanide's photoluminescence spectra and decays were modified due to silylation. The different silylation effects in Zeotile-1 and Zeogrid were correlated with the textural properties of the investigated materials. (C) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
