The spatially controlled channel entrances functionalization of disk shaped zeolite L crystals is described. Fluorescent dye or bioactive molecules are immobilized at one end of the channels of zeolite crystals and subsequently the other side of the crystals is derivatized with magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles. The asymmetrically functionalized crystals were used for the control of the movement of bacteria in solution.
