Bai, P. Wu, G. Zhao, Z. Yan and X. S. Zhao, J. Mater. Chem., 2008, 18, 74) were examined. With the assistance of characterization techniques, such as N2 adsorption, X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electronic microscopy (TEM), selected area electron diffraction (SAED) and 27Al magic-angle spinning (MAS) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), it was found that the parameters studied all have an influence on both the textural properties and the crystalline structure of the resultant solid materials. Dependence of the catalytic activity of the mesoporous alumina materials on the synthesis parameters was observed. The observed remarkably high catalytic activity of the mesoporous alumina materials is attributed to the high surface area, surface basicity, pure γ-Al 2O3 phase and absence of anion residues, such as SO 4 2-. © 2009 The Royal Society of Chemistry.||Source Title:||Journal of Materials Chemistry||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/114493||ISSN:||09599428||DOI:||10.1039/b819993k|
