News from the Structure Commission

2019 - 2020

3-Sep-20 One new Framework Type Code has been approved
  PTT Type material: PST-33

31-Jul-20 Database of Zeolite Structures News
    75 31P MAS NMR spectra of 32 pure aluminophosphate zeolites have been added to the database. Our thanks go to Darren Brouwer and his student Alexa L. White for evaluating the literature, digitizing the patterns and then deconvoluting them.  

    Now that there are so many NMR spectra in the database, a simple search/match routine for NMR spectra has been added to the search options in the database, courtesy of our database guru Christian Baerlocher.

    The framework chemical composition has been added for all materials in the database and is now searchable. Many thanks to Yi Li and his PhD student Chuting Zheng for extracting this information from the literature.
16-Oct-19 At the IZC in Perth, Australia, the Structure Commission
  welcomed four new members
    Darren Brouwer
Yi Li
John Mowat
Stef Smeets
  and thanked four retiring members for their service
    Werner Baur (1989-2019)
Reinhard Fischer (2001-2019)
Lynne McCusker (1989-2019, co-chair 1989-1993, chair 1993-2001)
Karl Strohmaier (2007-2019)

  The new officers of the Structure Commission are
    Robert Bell, Chairperson
Dan Xie, Co-chairperson

  Honorary Life Membership in the Structure Commission
    was bestowed on Werner Baur and Lynne McCusker in recognition of their long service to the IZA-SC.

  Honorary Life Membership in the International Zeolite Association
    was given to  IZA-SC member Christian Baerlocher in recognition of his contributions to the elucidation of the structural chemistry of zeolites and his devoted service to the design and maintenance of the Database of Zeolite Structures.
15-Aug-20 Database of Zeolite Structures News
    29Si MAS NMR spectra of some aluminosilicate zeolites have been added to the database. Our thanks go to Hubert Koller, who evaluated the literature, digitized the patterns and then deconvoluted them.
26-Jun-20 Database of Zeolite Structures News
    29Si MAS NMR spectra of over 50 pure silica zeolites have been added to the database. Our thanks go to Darren Brouwer and his students Carraugh Brouwer, Sofia Mesa, Claire Semelhago, Erin Steckley, Megan Sun and Janelle Mikolajewski for evaluating the literature, and then digitizing and deconvoluting the selected spectra.
