The sorption properties of an H-Mordenite, modified by controlled chemical reaction with tetramethyl-tin, SnMe4, and -germanium, GeMe4, were determined for linear and branched hydrocarbons. Their variations are correlated with the amount of anchored complex; the influence of the size of the alkyl ligands was determined. The separation of linear and monobranched C6 hydrocarbons from their dimethyl isomers could be achieved with some of these modified mordenites.
