Our article was featured on the cover of the October 2020 issue of Nature Materials. This work was a collaborative effort between University of Houston (Rimer, Palmer), Stockholm University (Zou), University of Minnesota (Dauenhauer), Utrecht University (Weckhuysen), and Johns Hopkins University (Tsapatsis). This work was part of a Focus Issue on Zeolite Catalysis.

About the Cover: Nanosized zeolites enable better catalytic performance; however, their synthesis is non-trivial. Here, a simple treatment is presented that enables the growth of nanosized fins on zeolites that act as pseudo-nanoparticles, reducing deactivation rates for methanol-to-hydrocarbon catalysts.
