Hypothetical Zeolite Database

The number of new zeolite structures has been rapidly growing in the past decades. In addition to their traditional applications, zeolites are now involved in various processes of current interest, such as energy saving catalytic processes, environmentally friendly sorbents, storage materials for waste and energy etc. High-throughput computer prediction methods have provided a large set of hypothetical structures as synthetic candidates, which have significantly leveraged the innovation of zeolitic materials. 


In this database, we provide two sets of hypothetical zeolite structures. One is generated by our computer program FraGen, which is designed for Monte Carlo direct-space structure modeling; the other one is for ABC-6 structures, which are enumerated through a materials genome approach.
