Zeolites are good shape selective catalyst due to their honeycomb-like structures. They are alumino-silicates that are microporous in structures. They are the 3D network of silicates in which some atoms of silicon are replaced by aluminium giving Al-O-Si framework.  Size and shape of reactant and product molecules, as well as pores and cavities of zeolites, are the reaction determining factors in zeolites.
