Abstract: Al-MSU-S mesoporous molecular sieve catalysts with Al contents ranging from 2.5 to 50 mol% have been prepared from "zeolite seed" solutions and C16 TMABr templates. Hexagonal mesoporous structures are formed that exhibit significantly higher amounts of tetrahedrally coordinated Al than analogous Al-MCM-41 catalysts. The Al-MSU-S catalysts also possess smaller pores than corresponding Al-MCM-41 materials. Catalytic cumene cracking activity is very high over the low Al content materials (2.5 mol%), approaching that of zeolite ZSM-5, but the catalytic activity decreases with increasing Al. As the Al content is increased, the Al atoms remain tetrahedrally coordinated but become less accessible to the cumene reagent. This and knowledge of zeolite synthesis suggest the formation of zeolite seeds other than the large pore LZY, such as the small pore LTA structure. © 2003 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
