Title
Hierarchically structured Beta zeolites with intercrystal mesopores and the improved catalytic properties
Abstract

•A dually porogenic surfactant has been synthesized.•The zeolite products have a well-connected, disordered intercrystal mesoporosity.•Employing DFT method to investigate the molecular properties of surfactant.•The hierarchical zeolites show excellent steam stability and high catalytic activity.

Hierarchical Beta zeolite with mesoporous/microporous structure was synthesized by employing a bifunctionalized amphiphilic surfactant. N2 adsorption–desorption isotherms indicated the presence of hierarchical mesopores in this sample. Transmission electron microscopy images confirmed the co-presence of ordered micropores and hierarchical mesopores. This sample exhibited excellent hydrothermal stability. In addition, the prepared hierarchically structured Beta zeolite showed greatly enhanced catalytic activity as compared with conventional counterpart for probe reaction involving large molecules due to the highly mesoporous structure, in which diffusion constraints of reactant molecules are the main concern. Such hierarchical micro/mesostructure Beta zeolite combined good hydrothermal stability and high activities may find potential applications in catalysis and adsorption involving bulky molecules.
