Abstract

The ability to adroitly tailor acid-strength using specifically-engineered bimetallic nanoporous materials has been investigated with a view to exploiting their potential in solid-acid catalysed transformations. Further, it has been demonstrated that through site-specific interactions, extra-framework zinc ions can suitably modify the acidity of Brønsted acid sites, to stimulate diverse catalytic responses, when combined with isomorphously-substituted framework metal cations within porous architectures, for the Beckmann rearrangement of cyclohexanone oxime and in the isopropylation of benzene.
