Hierarchically structured zeolite for catalysis

Hierarchically structured zeolite for catalysis

Internship Description

Novel hierarchically structured zeolites which contain both zeolitic micropores and intracrystalline mesopores will be synthesized and applied as heterogeneous catalysts for the conversion of crude oil, natural gases, and biomasses.

Deliverables/Expectations

1. Production of a series of hierarchically structure zeolites with different framework types
2. Catalytic evaluation of the produced hierarchical zeolites for methanol to hydrocarbons (MTH) reaction
3. Catalytic evaluation of the produced hierarchical zeolites for olefin oligomerization reaction
