Intensive research on zeolites, during the past thirty years, has resulted in a deep understanding of their chemistry and in a true zeolite science, including synthesis, structure, chemical and physical properties, and catalysis. These studies are the basis for the development and growth of several industrial processes applying zeolites for selective sorption, separation, and catalysis. In 1983, a NATO Advanced Study Institute was organized in Alcabideche (portugal) to establish the State-of-the-Art in Zeolite Science and Technology and to contribute to a better understanding of the structural properties of zeolites, the configurational constraints they may exert, and their effects in adsorption, diffusion, and catalysis. Since then, zeolite science has witnessed an almost exponential growth in published papers and patents, dealing with both fundamentals issues and original applications. The proposal of new procedures for zeolite synthesis, the development of novel and sophisticated physical techniques for zeolite characterization, the discovery of new zeolitic and related microporous materials, progresses in quantum chemistry and molecular modeling of zeolites, and the application of zeolites as catalysts for organic reactions have prompted increasing interest among the scientific community. An important and harmonious interaction between various domains of Physics, Chemistry, and Engineering resulted therefrom.

Review quote

`This volume is the most up-to-date collection of knowledge in zeolite science, and can be recommended not only for those who are already engaged in zeolite research, but also for scientists intending to do that in the future.'
React. Kinet. Catal. Lett., 47:1
'Use it! It constitutes an excellent sourcebook on specific topics of high interest, as well as being a good textbook for students and new researchers looking for an overview of the field. The editors and contributors are to be commended for pulling together a complex and multidimensional filed and packaging it under one cover.' Journal of Solid State Chemistry 100 1992
