Mesoporous aluminosilicates with a Si/Al ratio of 5 to 20, a pore diameter of 30 to 84 Å, and a specific surface area up to 1030 cm3/g have been prepared using hexadecylamine and Pluronic P123 as templates. These materials exhibit high activity in the cracking of hydrotreated vacuum gas oil. Bifunctional catalysts derived on their basis have high selectivity in the hydroisomerization of hexadecane.
