The clathrate type molecular sieve SAPO-16 was prepared via a hydrothermal synthesis using bis(cyclopentadienyl)cobalt(III) hydroxide, Cp2CoOH, as a template and characterized by XRD, FT-IR, UV-Vis and SEM. Additionally, the preparation and characterization of possibly new isostructural SAPO-UTD-3 and CoAPO-UTD-3 materials is reported.
