The control of zeolite morphology is of interest because it will permit the rational design of products that have a wide array of applications, from catalysis to thin films for electronic devices. Over the past couple of years, some progress has been made in manipulating zeolite crystal shape, though much more mechanistic understanding has to be gained for targeted design of zeolite morphology. There have also been important studies that have linked zeolite morphology and the presence of hierarchical porosity with improved functionality like catalytic activity and selectivity.
