Nanoscale devices based on zeolites require either thin films of single-crystalline zeolites or ordered arrangements of zeolite crystals. A novel technique—with potentially wide applications—is reported here that enables thousands of zeolite crystals to be ordered using a microstructured silicon surface. The figure shows zeolites oriented in two positions (marked A and B) in silicon grooves.
