There are several distinct two-dimensional zeolite building layers that can condense through different stacking arrangements of the layers to form various three-dimensional framework materials. All known building layers are dense layers in that they do not contain 8-membered ring (MR) or larger pores perpendicular to the two-dimensional layers. Herein, we report a new material (CIT-10) that consists of a two-dimensional layer (termed “rth” layer) that contains an 8 MR perpendicular to the layer. Calcination of CIT-10 forms pure-silica RTH (SSZ-50). CIT-10 can be pillared to form a new framework material with a three-dimensional pore system of 8 and 10 MRs, denoted CIT-11, that can be calcined to form a new microporous material, denoted CIT-12.
