TheMCM-41 supported Cs2.5H0.5PW12O40 and K2.5H0.5PW12O40 salts were synthesized by incipient wetness impregnation method. The solids were characterized by N2 adsorption-desorption isotherms, FTIR, XRD, and temperature programmed desorption, etc. This catalyst has been found to exhibit excellent activity for acetylation of phenolic compounds. The catalyst is stable and reusable giving 96% conversion with 100% selectivity towards acetate products.
