We outline a new concept within zeolite shape selectivity. We demonstrate that the shape selectivity of SUZ-4 during MTH reaction is determined by crystal morphology, not by framework topology. Crystal facets terminated exclusively by one of the two channel systems are preferentially exposed, thereby leading to morphology induced shape selectivity.
