Abstract

original image

Einblicke in die katalytische Aktivität von NaY-Zeolithen bei Methylierungen und Carboxymethylierungen mit Dimethylcarbonat liefert eine Kombination von schwingungsspektroskopischen und DFT-Methoden. Die elektrischen Felder in den räumlich beschränkten Hohlräumen der Superkäfige sind der Grund für die erhöhte Aktivität und Selektivität (siehe Bild).
