Abstract

original image

Layered success: A new one-pot method to prepare a highly active and yet selective and stable acidic micro-/mesoporous zeolite catalyst composite is reported. The process involves generating highly dispersed zeolitic sheets (ITQ-2) inside the synthesis gel of a mesoporous host structure (siliceous TUD-1) by in situ delamination of MCM-22 zeolite.
