Calorimetric measurements have been carried out on specimens of natrolite, mesolite, and scolecite in order to assess the thermodynamic properties of a zeolite series having the same alumino-silicate framework. Low-temperature heat capacity and high-temperature enthalpy increments of natrolite and scolecite were measured by adiabatic and drop-calorimetric techniques. Standard enthalpies of formation at 298.15 K of all three zeolites were determined by solution calorimetry. Thermodynamic functions have been calculated for natrolite to 660 K and for scolecite to 470 K. The heat capacity and standard entropy at 298.15 K have been estimated for mesolite.--Modified journal abstract.
