Zeolites: Hierarchical Y and USY Zeolites Designed by Post-Synthetic Strategies (Adv. Funct. Mater. 5/2012)
On page 916 Javier Pérez-Ramírez and co-workers establish different routes to prepare mesoporous Y and USY zeolites. Strategic combinations of optimized acid and base treatments, designed to steer clear of obstacles such as amorphization, pore blockage, and rea-lumination, form a treasure map leading to modified zeolites with a high potential in adsorption and catalytic applications.
