Shaping zeolites into useful forms is very important for technical applications in areas such as catalysis, separation, and sensing. Normally it is difficult to form zeolites into appropriate shapes without mixing them with binders. Here, a method is presented for transforming preformed layered silicates into silicalite zeolites (e.g. see Figure).
