Part of the Nanostructure Science and Technology book series (NST)


Porous inorganic materials such as zeolites and zeolitelike crystalline molecular sieves are of great interest because of their range of commercial applications such as catalysis, adsorption/separation, and ion exchange. The term zeolite refers to the specific class of aluminosilicate molecular sieves, although the term is frequently used more loosely to describe compounds other than aluminosilicates that have frameworks similar to known zeolites.
