Abstract

original image

Ring the change: The gallogermanate zeolite |(Ni(C3H10N2)3)36Ni4.7|[Ga81.4Ge206.6O576], which has three-dimensional intersecting 11-membered-ring channels (see picture, left), was synthesized. It has the lowest framework density of all known oxide zeolites and features pairs of chiral [312.43.62.116] cavities, induced by chiral [Ni(1,2-PDA)3]2+ cations formed in situ (see picture, right). 1,2-PDA=1,2-diaminopropane.
