Abstract: The mesoporous molecular sieves of the M41S family have little intrinsic catalytic activity. However, it is possible to functionalize the material by grafting organic side chains on the walls. These organic-inorganic hybrid materials maintain the advantages of the inorganic support, notably a high surface area and structural stability at elevated temperature and pressure. Catalysts based on MCM-41 functionalized with either hindered amine bases or free primary amino groups have been evaluated for the facile synthesis of monoglycerides from fatty acids and glycidol. Yields as high as 95% in 8 h have been achieved. The catalysts can be reused several times with little loss of activity.
