PKU-12 (Zeolite -CLO)

I constructed a bead model of PKU-12 (zeolite framework type -CLO) as a gift to Peking university in Dec. 2015. PKU-12 was synthesized by the team led by Profs. Yingxia Wang and Jianhua Lin. The details of their work is given in the paper entitled "A silicogermanate with 20-ring channels directed by a simple quaternary ammonium cation" published in Dalton Trans., 2013, 42, 1360.

The background of this photo is the Chemistry department of National Taiwan University and the beautiful Lake Moon-Drunk (or Lake Zui-Yue).

In my class, Molecular Aesthetics 2020, a student reproduced this model with different kind of beads.
