ZnO nanoparticle inception within mordenite and zeolites was achieved via ion exchange followed by NaOH leaching and thermal treatment. ZnO particles were characterized by high resolution electron microscopy; further characterization included X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetric analysis, and N2 sorption as well as ICP-AE spectrometry and XPS. The final zeolite products are endowed with a twofold micromesoporosity.
