Abstract

This project examined the theoretical geometrics, kinetics, and binding energies of chloroform and MTBE using Ab-Initio calculations. Using Gaussians03 to complete these calculations, we gained a better understanding of how chloroform and MTBE interact with zeolites. Results showed that both chloroform and MTBE will have preference in calcium rich zeolites over sodium rich zeolites.
