Preparation of methyltert-Butyl ether (MTBE) over heteropoly acids immobilized on activated carbon (HPA/C) in the vapor phase

Heteropolyacids (HPAs) supported on the activated carbon (SiW12/C and PW12/C) have been used to study the formation of methyltert-butyl ether (MTBE). Compared to the conventional commercial catalyts, Amberlyst-15 resin and HZSM-5, HPAs supported catalysts have been proved to have much higher catalytic activity under lower temperature, esperically selectivity to MTBE is up to 100%. It may be due to the high acid strength of HPAs as well as the specialty of heteropolyanion.
