Abstract

Structural determination of many ordered porous solids is challenging because of the small crystal sizes. Electron crystallography can overcome the challenges. On page 182, X. D. Zou and co-workers review different electron microscopic techniques for structural determination of zeolites, metal-organic frameworks, and ordered mesoporous materials. Several recently developed methods, including the structure projection reconstruction from a throughfocus series of high-resolution electron microscopy images, automated diffraction tomography and rotation electron diffraction, have made structural determination by electron crystallography today more efficient and more feasible.
