Abstract

We demonstrate here a seed-directed synthesis (SDS) of Beta, Levyne, and Heulandite zeolites in the absence of organotemplates, where the seeds drive crystallization of the zeolites. Compared with conventional Beta synthesized in the presence of organic templates, Beta-SDS exhibits large textural parameters, stable Al species, and unprecedentedly high density of active sites, resulting in superior catalytic activity and selectivity for valuable products in catalysis.
