Alkali zeolite is often used as an ion source material owing to its easy extraction of alkali ions. In our laboratory, we fabricated zeolite containing a particular alkali species through a replacement reaction with sodium zeolite. In this paper, we present a simple mathematical model for describing this replacement reaction for making zeolite containing a particular alkali species. In this model, the fraction of alkali ions trapped in the zeolite lattice is expressed as a function of the numbers of substitution reactions in a concise recursion formula. This formula gives a simple estimation of efficiency for fabricating alkali zeolite in terms of the consumptions of time and chemicals.
