Abstract

Catalytic activity of an H-clinoptilolite is compared with that of H-mordenite, HL, HZSM-5 and HY zeolites in the conversion of o-xylene and toluene. Because of the dimensions and structure of its channels, H-clinoptilolite, like H-ZSM-5, exhibits shape-selective catalysis, which enables the transformation essentially to isomerization products via a monomolecular mechanism.
