Abstract

Three series of mesoporous aluminosilicate molecular sieves, MCM-41, with various Si/Al ratios were synthesized using different aluminum sources (aluminum isopropoxide, pseudo boehmite and aluminum sulfate). XRD analysis, temperature programmed desorption of n-butylamine, 27Al and 29Si MAS NMR, and catalytic alkylation test indicated that aluminum isopropoxide is a better source for incorporating aluminum in the framework of MCM-41 type molecular sieves with better crystallinity and acid characteristics.
