Micro/Mesoporous Zeolitic Composites: Recent Developments in Synthesis and Catalytic Applications
AbstractMicro/mesoporous zeolitic composites (MZCs) represent an important class of hierarchical zeolitic materials that have attracted increasing attention in recent years. By introducing an additional mesoporous phase interconnected with the microporosity of zeolites, a hierarchical porous system of MZCs is formed which facilitates molecular transport while preserving the intrinsic catalytic properties of zeolites. Thus, these materials offer novel perspectives for catalytic applications. Over the years, numerous synthesis strategies toward the formation of MZCs have been realized and their catalytic applications have been reported. In this review, the three main synthesis routes, namely direct synthesis using zeolite precursors, recrystallization of zeolites, and zeolitization of preformed mesoporous materials are thoroughly discussed, with focus on prior works and the most recent developments along with prominent examples given from the literature. In addition, the significant improvement in the catalytic properties of MZCs in a wide range of industrially relevant reactions is presented through several representative cases. Some perspectives for the future development of MZCs are also given. View Full-Text
