Effect of H2O on the Pressure-Induced Amorphization of Hydrated AlPO4-17


The incorporation of guest species in zeolites has been found to strongly modify their mechanical behavior and their stability with respect to amorphization at high pressure (HP). Here we report the strong effect of H2O on the pressure-induced amorphization (PIA) in hydrated AlPO4-17. The material was investigated in-situ at HP by synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction in diamond anvil cells by using non- and penetrating pressure transmitting media (PTM), respectively, silicone oil and H2O. Surprisingly, in non-penetrating PTM, its structural response to pressure was similar to its anhydrous phase at lower pressures up to ~1.4 GPa, when the amorphization was observed to start. Compression of the structure of AlPO4-17 is reduced by an order of magnitude when the material is compressed in H2O, in which amorphization begins in a similar pressure range as in non-penetrating PTM. The complete and irreversible amorphization was observed at ~9.0 and ~18.7 GPa, respectively, in non- and penetrating PTM. The present results show that the insertion of guest species can be used to strongly modify the stability of microporous material with respect to PIA, by up to an order of magnitude.
