Abstract

In this paper, we report a simple template-free synthetic method that produces amorphous, nanoporous aluminosilicate and highly selective catalyst for toluene alkylation. The structure and composition of the material and its corresponding control material are characterized by various techniques. The material shows excellent catalytic selectivity for alkylation of toluene by tert-butyl alcohol in temperatures between 50–150 °C under atmospheric pressure, producing exclusively 4-tert-butlytoluene (ca. 99%).
