Volume 2, Issue 4 , Autumn 2013, , Pages 67-73


  MSU-S mesoporous catalyst with [SiO2]/[Al2O3] ratio of 55 was synthesized using tetrapropylammonium hydroxide (TPAOH) as a structure directing agent and hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) as a surfactant. The catalytic activity of the calcined sample was evaluated for the dehydration of methanol ...  Read More
