Zeolites are hydrated alkaline and alkaline-earth aluminosilicates with exclusive chemical-physical properties as: high cationic exchange capacity and considerable attitude to water absorption and desorption.
These properties come from an unusual crystalline structure, characterized by cavities and channels which host extremely mobile ions and water molecules.
