Abstract: The temperature stability of natural mordenite (Žďár by Stará Рака, Bohemia) was studied in the temperature range 20 °C—1000°C both in dynamic regime in air (DTA, TG) and in isothermal regime in vacuo. The products of decomposition were investigated by the X-ray powder method and infrared absorption spectroscopy. The scheme of the decomposition of mordenite may be written as follows mordenite→ metamordenite →  mordenite + amorphous phase →anorthite + Si02→  mordenite + amorphous phase + • anorthite + Si02 + amorphous phase Over the temperature of 510 °C, the remaining water forms the structural hydroxyl groups which persist up to the highest temperatures.
