Properties of Hierarchy Zeolite Obtained From Obsidian and Perlite

A method for obtaining hierarchical BEA, MOR, MFI, MTW, and GIS zeolites and nanocomposites by partial recrystallization of perlite and obsidian in the presence of polyquaternary ammonium salts, which act as structure-directing agents, is proposed. The obtained materials are characterized by a developed specific surface, the presence of Lewis (up to 98 μmol/g) and Bronsted (5-105 μmol/g) acid sites and show catalytic activity in the process of 1,1-diethoxyethane production from acetaldehyde and ethanol.
