Title: History and utility of zeolite framework-type discovery from a data-science perspective

Mature applications such as fluid catalytic cracking and hydrocracking rely critically on early zeolite structures. With a data-driven approach, we find that the discovery of exceptional zeolite framework types around the new millennium was spurred by exciting new utilization routes. The promising processes have yet not been successfully implemented (“valley of death” effect), mainly because of the lack of thermal stability of the crystals. As a result, this foreshadows limited deployability of recent zeolite discoveries that were achieved by novel crystal synthesis routes.
