Abstract: The structure of the new medium-pore alumino- phosphate molecular sieve PST-6 is determined by the combined use of rotation electron diffraction tomography, synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction, and computer model- ing. PST-6 was prepared by calcination of another new aluminophosphate material with an unknown structure syn- thesized using diethylamine as a structure-directing agent, which is thought to contain bridging hydroxy groups. PST-6 has 36 crystallographically distinct tetrahedral sites in the asymmetric unit and is thus crystallographically the most complex zeolitic structure ever solved.
