Mitra, S and Sumitra, S and Umarji, AM and Mukhopadhyay, R and Yashonath, S and Chaplot, SL (2004) Acetylene diffusion in Na-Y zeolite. In: Pramana Journal of Physics, 63 (2). pp. 449-453.

Study of diffusivity of acetylene adsorbed in Na-Y zeolite by quasi-elastic neutron scattering (QENS) measurements at temperatures of 300, 325 and 350 K is reported. A model in which the acetylene molecules undergo random-walk diffusion characterized by a Gaussian distribution of jump lengths inside zeolite cages describes the data consistently. The diffusion constant, residence time between jumps and root mean square jump length are determined.
