News from the Structure Commission

2015 - 2016

11-Oct-16 A new Framework Type Code has been approved
  ETL Type material: H-EU-12
        Juna, B., Cho, J., Lee, J.H., Seo, S.M. and Hong, S.B.
          "EU-12: a small-pore, high-silica zeolite containing sinusoidal eight-ring channels"
Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 55, 7369-7373 (2016)
1-Oct-16 20 years of Zeolite Structures on the web
To celebrate this milestone, some significant changes have been made to the Database of Zeolite Structures.

At first glance, the new database does not appear to be any different from the old one, but it is:

      The internal organization of the database has been completely reworked and everything has been migrated to open source software. The database is now completely platform independent.

      It is now running on 3 virtual (commercial) servers situated in Europe, North America and Asia.

      These servers are run and maintained independently by 3 groups: Christian Baerlocher and Lynne McCusker (ETH Zurich), Christine Kirschhock and her team (KU Leuven) and Wei Wan and Xiaodong Zou (Stockholm University), respectively.

      The basic layout has been retained for the time being, but a few new features have been added, including a more interactive XPD pattern display. Further additions/improvements are planned, so watch this space.

      Although we have done our best to check that the database is working properly before putting it online, we realize that some errors may have gone undetected. If you run into any difficulties, please send a short e-mail message describing the problem to Christian Baerlocher.

3-Sep-16 New Chair for the Structure Commission

After 15 years of service, Mike Treacy (right) has stepped down as Chair of the Structure Commission.

The members have enjoyed his reasoned and diplomatic steering of the Commission during this time and thank him for all the time he has invested in ensuring that the Commission continues to flourish. Fortunately, the Structure Commission will continue to benefit from his knowledge and experience as he will remain on the Commission as an acive member.

In an e-mail ballot, the members of the Structure Commission have elected
    Rob Bell as Chair and re-elected
    Karl Strohmaier as Co-chair
for 2016-2019
