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.

Keywords: Surfactant modified zeolite, silane modified zeolite, hydrocarbon uptake, anion uptake, dye uptake, monolayer, bilayer, organosilane.
