Simple as that: A novel crystalline microporous titanosilicate (Ti-COE-4) with functionalized hydroxyl groups and medium micropore size (0.55 nm) is successfully synthesized through dimethylsilylation and calcination. The synergism of hydroxyl groups with active Ti sites in Ti-COE-4 significantly improves its catalytic activities in oxidation reactions.
