It is a great pleasure for me to invite you to submit a manuscript to the Special Issue "New Horizons in Zeolites and Zeolite-Like Materials", which will be published in the journal Crystals.
This Special Issue targets interdisciplinary state-of-the-art research articles, communications, and reviews related to various aspects of the synthesis, characterization and application of zeolites and zeolite-like materials. Two rapidly developing vectors are currently emerging in this area: novel applications for the “old” systems (conventional zeolite) and fascinating hybrid zeolite-like materials, including diverse mesoporous materials (oxide-, carbon-, and polymer-based) and coordination polymers, such as metal organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent organic frameworks (COFs) and zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs). All these materials exhibit a clear molecular sieve effect and extended micro/meso porosity. In some aspects, these newcomers are better or richer in properties and structures than the classical zeolites and provide more opportunities for variation of the structure and composition. The true zeolite nature of the newcomers in the zeolite world can be easily recognized from the shape-selectivity effects, huge specific surface areas and pore volumes, and typical zeolite architecture. Zeolite-like materials play a paramount role in contemporary research and practice. Advanced architectures provide a driving force for the progress in diverse research areas, including the development of new nano-engineered catalysts and adsorbents, smart and stimuli-responsive materials, sensors, as well as materials for energy applications (harvesting, storage). The incentive of this Special Issue is to show progress in key aspects of the broad “zeolite” arena. Combining individual contributions from these areas will allow us to produce the journal issue with a high impact. Thus, submissions focused on any new zeolite-like materials and their novel applications are cordially invited.
Please note that Crystals is an open access journal, and the whole Special Issue will be freely available for all readers across the world. Information about open access options and conditions is provided on the journal website.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
