Zeolite scientists, whether or not they are operating in synthesis, catalysis, characterization or software improvement, use the Atlas of Zeolite Framework Types
as a reference. It describes the most positive factors of all the proven zeolite framework constructions, and provides references to the appropriate basic structural literature. because the final version 34 extra framwork varieties were licensed and are defined during this new version. an additional new characteristic could be that attribute construction devices could be indexed for every of the framework types.
Zeolites and their analogs are used as desiccants, as water softeners, as shape-selective acid catalysts, as molecular sieves, as concentrators of radioactive isotopes, as blood clotting brokers, or even as ingredients to animal feeds. lately, their suitability as hosts for nanometer spacing of atomic clusters has additionally been validated. those varied purposes are a mirrored image of the attention-grabbing buildings of those microporous fabrics. every time a new zeolite framework constitution is stated, it's tested by means of the constitution fee of the foreign Zeolite organization (IZA-SC), and whether it is chanced on to be distinctive and to comply to the IZA-SC's definition of a zeolite, it really is assigned a 3-letter framework sort code. This code is a part of the respectable IUPAC nomenclature for microporous fabrics. The Atlas of Zeolite Framework forms is largely a compilation of information for every of those proven framework kinds. those facts contain a stereo drawing displaying the framework connectivity, positive aspects that signify the idealized framework constitution, a listing of fabrics with this framework variety, details at the style fabric that was once used to set up the framework variety, and stereo drawings of the pore openings of the sort material.
* transparent stereo drawings of every of the framework types
* Description of the good points of the framework sort, permitting readers to fast see if the framework sort is acceptable to their needs
* References to isotypic fabrics, readers can speedy establish comparable fabrics and seek advice the proper reference
