Boiling stones - Zeolites
Zeolites, derived from the Greek words zeo (to boil) and lithos (stone), are aluminosilicate minerals that seemed to froth or boil when heated in a blowpipe in flame. Zeolites are used in many industries due internal pore structure. A novel method has been developed of making zeolites with a tailored porosity in a timely and energy efficient way that also improves its performance in catalysis.
