Polymers have attracted considerable attention in the synthesis of zeolites with controllable structures and morphologies (sizes and shapes) because of their three-dimensional networks, abundant functional groups and designed molecular sizes. Polymer networks can function as a space-confinement additive, a mesopore-forming agent, etc., and significantly affect zeolite nucleation and growth processes. This paper highlights the preparation of hollow/core-shell structures, zeolite nanocrystals, zeolite crystals with tunable shapes and mesoporous structure.
