    The synthesis of zeolite Y and its application in fluidized catalytic cracking could be taken as a milestone in the field of oil refining and petrochemical industry. It is well-known that the framework SiO2/Al2O3 molar ratio(SAR) of zeolite Y determines its thermal/hydrothermal stability and catalytic properties. To improve the framework SAR of zeolite Y can effectively decrease acid sites density, enhance acid strength and thus ameliorate the thermal/hydrothermal stability and catalytic cracking performance. Currently, the high silica zeolite Y used in industry is prepared by complex post-synthesis treatment. Although direct synthesis is an ideal way to obtain high zeolite Y, it remains a challenging topic in the field of zeolite synthesis. Herein, we review the progress in direct synthesis of high silica zeolite Y, including the syntheses both in inorganic and organic systems. At last, we summarize the crystallization mechanism of zeolite Y.

    Zeolites have been widely utilized in chemical industry as the most important solid catalysts because of their tunable acidities and shape selective catalysis. Synthesis of zeolites is usually performed via hydrothermal crystallization in a strong basic medium. Hydroxide ions(OH?) are considered to catalyze the depolymerization and polymerization of the silicate and aluminate species. Recently, it was found that the hydroxyl radicals(·OH) existed in the hydrothermal synthesis system. By using physical or chemical methods such as ultraviolet irradiation and Fenton’s reagent, ·OH radicals can be introduced into the zeolite synthesis system, which remarkably accelerated the zeolite crystallization and promoted the formation of zeolites with higher SiO2/Al2O3 ratio. Density functional theory calculations demonstrated that ·OH radicals significantly facilitated the depolymerization of the aluminosilicate gel by breaking the Si—O—Si bonds and the polymerization of the aluminosilicate anions around the hydrated cation species by remaking the Si—O—Si bonds, thus speeding up the nucleation and favoring Si incorporation into the zeolite frameworks. This review summarizes the recent progress in the application of ·OH radicals in the synthesis of zeolites, with an emphasis on the role and advantage of ·OH radicals in zeolite crystallization. The future perspective of the ·OH radical route for the synthesis of zeolites is pointed out.

    Despite great efforts have been performed for a long time since 1950s’, new achievements for zeolite synthesis in recent years give many examples to overstep the traditional theory for zeolite crystallization, in particular to the template effect, water role, zeolite building units, and crystal transformation in the aluminosilicate zeolites. In this review, authors systemically discuss the essence of the aforementioned factors. By investigation of template effect, it is suggested a new strategy for organotemplate-free synthesis of aluminosilicate zeolites; through understanding the role of water in the zeolite synthesis, it is designed solvent-free synthesis of zeolites; observed by crystal transformation of zeolites, it is proposed that both low to high framework density and high to low framework density could be realized.

    Germanosilicates with (extra)-large pores have shown significant potential in the bulky molecules-involved catalytic reactions. However, the Ge―O bonds are easily hydrolyzed even in humid environment and induced structural collapse, which restricts the practical application of germanosilicates. However, the weak Ge―O bonds also endow germanosilicates structural modifiable properties for possible construction of novel zeolite frameworks by partial or full removing framework Ge atoms to induce structural deconstruction and reconstruction. The review summarizes recent progresses achieved in field of germanosilicates, including structural stabilization of germanosilicates, structural modification of germanosilicates, and their promising catalytic applications. Last but not the least, future challenges in the field of germanosilicates are also proposed.

    Hierarchical zeolites with intracrystalline mesopores exhibit the characteristic features of microporous zeolites and mesoporous materials, offering improved mass transport property and catalytic performance for zeolite materials. Development of mesoporous zeolites for catalysis, adsorption and separation has been significantly advanced in the past decades. In particular, several new synthesis strategies have been invented, which provided a wide range of flexibility and turnability to control the mesoporosity, composition and morpho-logy of mesoporous zeolites. In the short review, we focus on the recent advances in different synthesis strategies. Particular emphasis is given to the recently developed post-synthetic methods for the synthesis of low Si/Al ratio mesoporous zeolites, synthesis of mesoporous zeolites by supramolecular self-assembly and in situ synthesis of mesoporous zeolites using small organic molecules. The formation mechanisms associated with the synthesis approaches are discussed in order to provide insights into future development of mesoporous zeolites. At the end of this review, we discuss some critical challenges regarding the synthesis of mesoporous zeolites using the different synthesis strategies.

    Hierarchical zeolites refer to zeolitic materials having bi-/multi-modal interconnective pores arranged in order of certain ranks, which improve the molecular diffusion within their frameworks, and hence the performance in their applications such as adsorption and heterogeneous catalysis. Hierarchical zeolites are commonly produced via the top-down post-synthetic treatments(such as dealumination and/or desilication) of pre-synthesized zeolites(i.e. the parent zeolites) and the bottom-up synthesis-by-design methods(such as soft/hard templating). This review presents the recent advances(mainly post 2000) in the strategies of making hierarchical zeolites, with the emphasis on the top-down approaches due to their relatively high practicality. Since hierarchical zeolites are proposed to improve intracrystalline diffusion, experimental studies of guest molecules diffusion in hierarchical zeolites are also reviewed. Additionally, catalytic applications of hierarchical zeolites, in comparison with the conventional microporous pristine zeolites, are also commented to highlight the advantages of hierarchical zeolites to improve catalysis.

    Zeolites are a vital type of crystalline material with well-defined channel structures and isolated catalytically active sites. However, their microporous nature hinders their applications in the transformation of bulky molecules. Ten years ago, Corma and coworkers provided a historical review of the synthesis, structure, and catalytic performance of extra-large pore(ELP) zeolites. This type of zeolite bridges the gap between traditional zeolites and ordered mesoporous materials. In the last decade, several new ELP zeolites, as well as novel methodologies for preparing them, have been reported. This review provides a renewed view of this topic.

    Molecular sieves and metal organic framework (MOF) materials are widely used in the fields of catalysis, energy storage, drying, purification, and adsorption separation due to their unique pores and framework structures. The atomic scale characterization of their structures is significance for a deep understanding of their structure-activity relationships. However, their large pore structure and organic framework make them extremely sensitive to electron beam. The structure will be quickly destroyed and become amorphous in the conventional transmission electron microscope imaging mode, and the atomic arrangement information of the pores and framework cannot be obtained. The recently developed scanning transmission electron microscopy technology based on integrated differential phase contrast (iDPC-STEM) has shown obvious advantages in imaging of beam sensitive materials and light element components, making the characterization of porous framework materials and hydrocarbon pool species become possible. This article reviews our research group’s recent research on molecular sieve and MOF material atomic structure using this technology. The iDPC-STEM technology was applied to the ZSM-5 molecular sieve catalyst for methanol conversion to realize the imaging analysis of the atomic-level framework structure of the molecular sieve. In the MOF system, the coordination mode of the organic linker and the metal node in the MIL-101 framework was observed using this technology. On this basis, the benzene ring structure of the organic link and the metal node was analyzed, and the atomic-level surface, interface and defects and other local structural features of the MOF were observed. Finally, the application potential of iDPC-STEM technology in atomic scale imaging is summarized and prospected.

    Carbohydrates are important biomass feedstock which can be transformed to expected products by catalytic processes. Metal-containing zeolites with Lewis acidity have been found to exhibit excellent reactivity in conversion of carbohydrates. Understanding the nature of active sites and reaction mechanism is essential for the development of highly active catalyst towards carbohydrates conversion. Nuclear magnetic resonance(NMR) spectroscopy is a powerful tool to provide useful information on active site and reaction mechanism in zeolite catalysis. This review focuses on the recent progress of NMR studies of active centers, interactions between catalysts and reactants, reaction mechanisms and product distributions in catalytic conversion of carbohydrates on zeolites. Challenges and opportunities in this field are also discussed.

    Zeolites have the desired advantages of tunable acidity and shape selectivity for their outstanding performance in heterogeneous catalysis. This review focuses on the recent progress in the understanding of acidity and shape-selectivity in zeolites by solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance(ssNMR) spectroscopy. The number, strength, type, and synergistic effect of the acid sites in zeolites have been explored by ssNMR with/without probe molecules. Moreover, ssNMR investigations provide evidence of the shape-selectivity of zeolites by the direct observation of crucial intermediates in heterogeneous reactions. The synergy of the acidity and shape-selectivity helps the better design of the zeolites for better heterogeneous catalysis.

    The catalytic performance and reaction mechanism of ZSM-5 zeolite in the conversion of methanol to olefins(MTO) is closely related to the distribution of acid sites in framework. In this work, it was demonstrated that adding proper content of Na+ ions during synthesis can increase the proportion of acid sites in the intersection cavity of ZSM-5; the concentration of acid sites in the intersection cavity can promote the formation of higher polymethylbenzene(polyMBs) and the propagation of aromatic cycle, forming more ethene. In contrast, in the Na+ ions free synthesis system, more acid sites are distributed in the sinusoidal and straight channels of ZSM-5, which is more encouraging for the alkene cycle and conduces to producing more propene and higher alkenes(C3+).

The cooperativity is from the Br?nsted acid site and the Lewis acid site as well as from adjacent Br?nsted acid sites. Kinds of characterization are described for molecular adsorption, activation and transformation together with catalysis performance. The theoretical calculation is also performed to prove the cooperative catalysis. The challenge of studying the new facile pathway of cooperative catalysis is also raised up, and accurate measuring the distance of two acid sites and quantifing the amount of adjacent acid sites are pursued as well.

    Membrane-based separation is an advanced technology with significantly low energy consumption, and has enormous potential in industrial separation applications. However, commercial gas separation membranes are subjected to the trade-off between selectivity and permeability. Membranes constructed with two- dimensional(2D) nanosheets as building units hopefully break through this bottleneck. To date, the most representative 2D nanosheet membranes are graphene and its derivatives, 2D zeolites, layered double hydro-xides, 2D transition metal dichalcogenides, 2D covalent organic frameworks and metal-organic framework materials. In this review, the developments and progresses of these membrane materials in the field of gas separation will be introduced, presenting their merits and demerits in the practical separation process simultaneously, and the challenges and development prospects of the 2D nanosheet membranes for gas separation applications will be discussed.
