Shape-selective reactions: Highly selective catalysts are obtained by alkaline and subsequent acid leaching of conventionally prepared zeolites. Active sites that are located in the shape-selective environment of micropores and accessible through mesopores (see picture) provide high selectivity and activity in acid-catalyzed reactions.
