Abstract

The differential H pair distribution function obtained from neutron scattering contrast measurements on hydrogenous and deuterated chloroform adsorbed into zeolite NaY (two molecules per supercage) reveals direct evidence for hydrogen bonding between hydrogen atoms on the sorbate molecule and oxygen atoms of the zeolite framework. A vector between the hydrogen and framework Si/Al atoms is also observed. The results confirm the conclusions drawn from previous vibrational spectroscopy and computer modeling studies.
