The Structure Commission

was established at the 4th International Conference on Molecular Sieves in 1977

  to evaluate zeolite structural data in the literature, and

  to prepare compilations of those data for the benefit of the zeolite community


This has led to

  the Structure Commission being given the authority by IUPAC to assign framework type codes (consisting of three capital letters) to all unique and confirmed framework topologies,

  the generation of a series of publications that are updated on a regular basis, and

  the design and maintenance of a set of zeolite structure databases that can be accessed via the internet
