Large-cage zeolite structures

Zeolite type structures with large cages interconnected by multidimensional 12-ring channels have been synthesized. More than a dozen large-pore materials were created in three different topologies with aluminum (or gallium), cobalt (or manganese, magnesium, or zinc), and phosphorus at the 64 tetrahedral coordination sites. Crystallographic data have been gathered for 20 selected zeolite analogs and structures synthesized in five space groups.
