  A third edition of Verified Syntheses of Zeolitic Materials is planned

for the 18th IZC that will be held in 2015 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The idea is to make reproducible recipes for zeolite synthesis easily available to the zeolite community.

The Commission welcomes input from the zeolite community as to which materials should be added to the existing ones. You are encouraged to contact any of the members of the Synthesis Commission (e-mail addresses can be found here) with suggestions.
