Making the right site: Lewis acid centers generated upon the desilication of commercial MFI zeolites in alkaline media are shown to catalyze the isomerization of dihydroxyacetone to lactic acid, competing with tin-containing zeolites. This opens exciting perspectives for the use of hierarchical zeolites with tailored porous and acidic properties in biomass-to-chemical conversions.
