In this work, the liquid phase adsorption of hydrocarbons on large cage faujasite type zeolites
is studied. The used hydrocarbons are alkanes (C5-C14), alkenes (C6-C12) and aromatics (C6-
C9). Special attention is devoted to molecular packing mechanisms that influence the
selectivity and maximum adsorption capacity of alkenes and aromatics
