Silica-supported heteropoly acids promoted by Pt/Al2O3 present efficient catalytic activity for the isomerization of n-hexane, and among them 50 wt% HSiW/SiO2 promoted by Pt/Al2O3 shows the best catalytic performance, which might be closely related to the maintenance of the surface structure of heteropoly acids during reaction.
