Abstract

Three dimensional cage type mesoporous aluminosilicates (AlKIT-5) were successfully synthesized hydrothermally using pluronic F127 as a template under highly acidic medium. The reaction conditions were optimized to get more conversion of acetic anhydride, and the activity of these catalysts was compared with zeolite catalysts. The AlKIT-5 catalysts showed excellent performance in the acetylation of veratrole over zeolites and other mesoporous catalysts studied under the optimized reaction conditions. The kinetics of the AlKIT-5(10) catalyst in the acetylation of veratrole were elucidated. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 18th Annual Saudi Arabia-Japan Joint Symposium on Catalysts in Petroleum Refining & Petrochemicals (Dhahran, Saudi Arabia 11/16-17/2008).
