Abstract

Zeolite type structures with large cages interconnected by multidimensional 12-ring (rings of 12 tetrahedrally coordinated atoms) 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 tetrahedral coordination sites. Tetragonal UCSB-8 has an unusually large cage built from 64 tetrahedral atoms and connected by an orthogonal channel system with 12-ring apertures in two dimensions and 8-ring apertures in the third. Rhombohedral UCSB-10 and hexagonal UCSB-6 are structurally related to faujasite and its hexagonal polymorph, respectively, and have large cages connected by 12-ring channels in all three dimensions.
