Copper ion-exchanged ZSM-5 samples, prepared using an easy method that takes advantage of microwaves, exhibit a quite peculiar adsorption feature for dinitrogen molecules, in that a large volume of chemisorbed N2 was detected, even at room temperature, and the specificity of the adsorption properties was clarified by comparing with the properties of samples prepared by an ordinary ion-exchange method.
