Abstract

Playing with a full deck: A simple, one-step synthesis of self-pillared zeolite MFI nanosheets was realized with the use of a surprisingly simple structure directing agent. Nanosheets were intergrown in an open “house of cards” arrangement with combined micropores and mesopores. Hierarchical porosity of this catalyst resulted in improved catalytic performance.
