Super-microporouos silicon material with high hydrothermal stability denoted as MCM-41-T has been prepared from mesoporous MCM-41 by high temperature treatment. The structural and chemical property of MCM-41-T has been characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, N2 adsorption-desorption, infrared spectroscopy and 29Si MAS NMR. The characteristic results show that Si–OH groups are forced to condense by high temperature treatment, and the pore size of MCM-41-T is around 1.5 nm in the super-microporous range. Compared with the original material MCM-41, the hydrothermal stability of MCM-41-T has been significantly enhanced.

A novel zeolite material denoted as ITQ-2-like was synthesized by treating MCM-22 precursor with H2O2 and characterized by various physicochemical techniques (X-ray powder diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, thermogravimetric-differential thermal analyses, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and nitrogen adsorption–desorption). It was found that not only the organic template could be completely removed but also the morphology and topology structure of MCM-22 precursor was well preserved after H2O2 treatment. Novel zeolite material ITQ-2-like presented relatively ordered cascaded layers in a faceto-face orientation along the 𝑐-axis and exhibited different physicochemical properties in comparison with ITQ-2 and MCM-22 prepared from the same precursor. Moreover, the catalytic behaviour and pore roles of three kinds of Mo-containing catalysts of ITQ-2-like, MCM-22 and ITQ-2 were investigated in the reaction of methane aromatization.

A series of hierarchical porous aluminosilicate materials were prepared using hydrothermal treatment of the composite formed by polystyrene colloidal spheres and aluminosilicate gel. Influence of Al content on the textural properties, acidic properties and catalytic activity of the hierarchical porous aluminosilicate materials was studied. The results showed that textural and acidic properties of the hierarchical porous aluminosilicate materials were strongly related to Al content. As Al content is increased (𝑛Si/𝑛Al = 25), the hierarchical porous catalysts exhibited higher catalytic activity and major product selectivity for alkylation of phenol with tert-butanol than the catalysts with a lower Al content (𝑛Si/𝑛Al = 50).
