The thermodn. factors playing a role in the crystn. of Si-rich zeolites are discussed. The Ostwald ripening model for nucleation and the Ostwald law of successive transformations make it possible to describe the kinetic phenomena in terms of the relative stability of the intermediate phases. The contribution of the interfacial free energy between the large internal surface area in the micropores and the intracryst. liquor to the chem. potential of the zeolitic material plays a crucial role. A model for the elementary steps occurring in pentasil zeolite formation is proposed
