CLAUDIA COBZARU, ADRIANA MARINOIU, CORINA CERNATESCU, ADRIAN CATALIN PUITEL, AMALIA SOARE EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES FOR THE CINNAMALDEHYDE ADSORPTION ON DEALUMINATED CLINOPTILOLITE USING AS CARRIER In this study the adsorption of cinnamaldehyde on the dealuminated clinoptilolite has been studied in order to investigate the possibility of using this mineral as carrier for organic compound. The characterization of dealuminated clinoptilolite and adsorption of cinnamaldehyde on the material surface has been investigated by BET, SEM and FTIR methods. These analyses show that by dealumination, significant modifications are produced in chemical composition, pore volume and surface area of the clinoptilolite and the cinnamaldehyde was adsorpted in the structure of dealuminated zeolite. Due to properties of the cinnamaldehyde, the obtained product can be used as an agrichemical.
