Zeolites are crystalline aluminosilicates that are found in different molecular structures in nature.
In current study, best toxin binding ability was shown by hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicates, which is active ingredient of Myco AD and then by Vitamin E and selenium.
The investigated topsoils consist mainly of quartz, the aluminosilicates kaolinite, illite, chlorites and muscovite, the carbonates calcite, dolomite and ankerite, the sulphate gypsum and native sulphur (Fig.
Feldspar is made up of aluminosilicates of soda, potassium, or lime.
That is possible because, both during and after combustion, the formation of alkali aluminosilicates is thermodynamically favored over the formation of alkali chlorides, sulfates, vanadates and other salts.
Formation of aluminosilicates proceeds actively even at a temperature of 900[degrees]C, that is clear while comparing the curves of differential thermal analysis (pic.

Many of the filters showed irregular and amorphous particles, agglomerations of smaller particles, fibers, dander, aluminosilicates, and pollen.
These materials were first produced on a significant scale by Purdon in the 1940s (Purdon 1940), but the worldwide awareness of this technology started to develop in 1950s with the work developed by Glukhovsky in Eastern Europe, who investigated the binders used in ancient Roman and Egyptian structures (Glukhovsky 1994), discovering the possibility of producing binders using low basic calcium or calcium-free aluminosilicates (clays) and solutions containing alkali metals (Glukhovsky 1959).
This coating material, which is, in practice, aluminosilicates, needs to be thick enough to effectively prevent close contact of the [TiO.
