ABSTRACT: Three kinds of Al-pillared montmorillonite clay minerals (AlPMON) ion-exchanged with cobalt(II), nickel(II), or copper(II) ions were prepared (abbreviated as CoAlPMON, NiAlPMON, or CuAlPMON, respectively). For the 673-K- and 873-K-treated samples, carbon monoxide (CO) adsorption measurement was performed at room temperature under an atmosphere of low CO pressure. The 873-K-treated CuAlPMON sample exhibited more efficient adsorption properties for CO molecules, in comparison with both-temperatures-treated CoAlPMON and NiAlPMON samples and the 673-K-treated CuAlPMON sample. In addition, irreversibly adsorbed CO was present only on the CuAlPMON sample that had been treated at 873 K; the sites responsible for strong CO adsorption were formed in the sample after the pretreatment at the higher temperature.
