Recent developments have included the synthesis of new, large pore zeolite structures, zeotypes and metal substituted zeolites, along with the in situ investigation of zeolite synthesis and control of morphologies. In terms of new zeolite structures there is increasing realisation of the aim to specifically design templates to control zeolite structures, and the use of the fluoride ion as a mediating agent has been influential. In terms of zeotypes considerable effort has been directed at transition metal containing systems, particularly those of cobalt, with the potential to generate redox active catalytic centres. Growth of zeolite films on substrates has also been developed and progress is being made in studying directly, using diffraction and NMR techniques, the crystallisation of zeolites.
