Zeolite ZSM-5 MFI

ZSM-5 (also known as MFI) is very similar to ZSM-11, but one set of pores is zig-zag, or sinusoidally shaped, so its a little more difficult to see. ZSM-5 is a famous zeolite with a truly remarkable history and uncanny ability to promote hydrocarbon reactions. Try the wire frame structure of ZSM-5 and see if you can find the zig-zag pore.
