Ti-containing zeolites showed extremely high activity and selectivity in numerous friendly environmental oxidation reactions with hydrogen peroxide as a green oxidant. It will be in high demand to synthesize Ti-containing crystalline extra-large-pore zeolites due to the severe restrictions of medium-pore and/or large-pore zeolites for bulky reactant oxidations. However, the direct synthesis of extra-large-pore Ti-zeolites was still challengeable. Here, we firstly report a strategy to directly synthesize high-performance Ti-containing CFI-type extra-large-pore (Ti-CFI) zeolites assisted with fluorides. The well-crystallized Ti-CFI zeolites with framework titanium species could be synthesized in the hydrofluoric acid system with seed or in the ammonium fluoride system without seed, which showed higher catalytic activity for cyclohexene oxidation than that synthesized from the traditional LiOH system.
