Product Detail

CAS No.: 1318-02-1 

Y-type series zeolites are characterized by large, essentially spherical, internal cavities often called super cages that are linked through pore openings less than 1nm and are externally defined by rings of oxygen atoms. ACS Material’s Y-type series zeolites are an important component of our molecular sieves collection and include:

  • Y-RE2
  • Y-RE2-Pe
  • Y-RE16
  • Y-RE16-Pe
  • Na-Y
  • Na-Y-Pe

These zeolites are effective as a cracking catalyst in converting petroleum crude to diesel, gas, and other products. They are also used in detergent manufacturing, odor control, gas absorption, wastewater filtration, and soil remediation. Y-type series zeolites act as a flocculating agent and industrial filler, and they’re an important ingredient in animal feeds, desiccants, lightweight concrete, and ceramics.

ACS Material supplies Y-type series zeolites and other molecular sieves and nanomaterials to researchers around the world. Our reputation for quality, service, and reasonable prices make us your preferred source for cutting-edge nanomaterials of all kinds. Find what you need for your research at ACS Material today.
