Nanoporous minerals, including the naturally occurring zeolites, are well known for their variety of uses in geological, environmental, industrial, and even medical applications. Certain nanoporous minerals, such as sitinakite, are ideal for nuclear waste sequestration due to their remarkable resistance to extreme pH and high gamma radiation, adjustable tunnel structures, and exceptionally high ion selectivity.
