In this chapter we address the modification of the surface properties of
zeolites. The first method discussed is the attachment of long chain surfactant molecules
to enable the sorption of anionic and non-polar species. The second method is known as
silation, where the presence of silanol groups on the zeolite surface are exploited to
form a hydrophobic material.
