Abstract

The location of methyl chloride sorbed within zeolite rho has been determined by Rietveld profile analysis of powder X-ray diffraction data in the temperature range 40-250K. The methyl group is situated close to the center of an octagonal prism with the chlorine atom at the center of the octagonal face of the alpha -cage. This position is similar to that found previously for xenon and krypton sorbed in zeolite rho.
