Mesoporous Aluminosilicates in the Synthesis of N-Heterocyclic Compounds

  • 2 Accesses


The catalytic properties of samples of amorphous mesoporous aluminosilicate ASM with different Si/Al molar ratios (40, 80, 160) were studied in the synthesis of practically important pyridines (by the interaction of С2–С5 alcohols with formaldehyde and ammonia, cyclocondensation of acetaldehyde and propionic aldehyde with ammonia), dialkylquinolines and alkyltetrahydroquinolines (by reaction of aniline with C3, C4 aldehydes) and alkyldihydroquinolines (by interaction of aniline with ketones, acetone and acetophenone). It is found that mesoporous aluminosilicate ASM sample with a molar ratio of Si/Al = 40, which has the highest acidity among the studied samples, exhibits the highest activity and selectivity in these reactions.
