Synthesis of Al-Containing Mesoporous Molecular Sieves and their Catalytic Performance to Isomerization Reaction of Endo-Tetrahydrodicyclo-Pentadiene
Al-containing mesoporous molecular sieves(Al-MCM-41) were synthesized at ambient temperature. The structures of samples were characterized by XRD, N2-adsorption/desorption isotherms and FT-IR, etc. The evaluation results showed that Al-MCM-41 had higher catalytic activity for isomerization conversion of endo-tetrahydrodicyclo-pentadiene (endo-TCD) into exo-tetrahydrodicyclo-pentadiene (exo-TCD) and adamantane (AdH). Loading inorganic acid on the surface of Al-MCM-41 led increase of its catalytic activity and the yield of adamantane.
