The crystalline aluminophosphate melecular sieve with the largest pore openings (20 MR) to date, DNL-1, has been prepared. Zhijian Tian, Dalian National Laboratory for Clean Energy, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Dalian, China, and co-workers describe the ionothermal synthesis of DNL-1 using a co-structure-directing agent and the confirmation of its structure by Rietveld refinement of PXRD and NMR analysis. The new material has a -CLO framework.

Compared with zeolite analogue of gallophosphate (GaPO4) cloverite, DNL-1 exhibits excellent stability, which suggests potential applications in separation, catalysis, and gas storage.
