Abstract (english): Molecular-dynamics simulations are performed to understand the role of host-framework flexibility on the diffusion of methane molecules in the one-dimensional pores of AFI, LTL, and MTW-type zeolites. In particular, the impact of the choice of the host model is studied. Dynamically corrected Transition State Theory is used to provide insights into the diffusion mechanism on a molecular level. Free-energy barriers and dynamical correction factors can change significantly by introducing lattice flexibility. In order to understand the phenomenon of free-energy barriers reduction, we investigate the motion of the window atoms. The influence that host-framework flexibility exerts on gas diffusion in zeolites is, generally, a complex function of material, host model, and loading such that transferability of conclusions from one zeolite to the other is not guaranteed.
