A hierarchical zeolite Beta has been prepared by a feasible one-pot and one-step method, which is suitable for application in industrial production. The synthesis is a simple hydrothermal process with low-cost raw materials, without adding alcohol or adding seeds, and without aging, recrystallization, and other complex steps. The hierarchical zeolite Beta is a uniform nanocrystal (20–50 nm) aggregation with high external surface area (300 m2/g) and mesoporous volume (0.50 cm3/g), with the mesoporous structure composed of intercrystal and intracrystal pores. As an acid catalyst in benzylation of naphthalene with benzyl chloride, the hierarchical zeolite Beta has shown high activity in the bulky molecule reaction due to its introduction of mesostructure.
