Compositions and methods for preparing mesoporous and/or mesostructured materials from low Si/Al zeolites. Various embodiments described herein relate to preparation of mesoporous and/or mesostructured zeolites via a framework modification step followed by a mesopore introduction step.


Mesoporous compositions and methods for preparing mesoporous and/or mesostructured materials from inorganic materials are provided. Various embodiments described herein relate to the preparation of mesoporous and/or mesostructured zeolites via a dehydroxylation pretreatment followed by a mesopore introduction step.


Methods for introducing mesoporosity into zeolite materials that employ an acid pretreatment step are provided. By utilizing a non-acidic chelating agent during the acid treatment step, the zeolite material can be pretreated with a strong acid, often in higher concentrations or over shorter contact times, than had previously been contemplated. The resulting acid-treated mesoporous materials retain desirable properties, including Si/Al, UCS, and total mesopore and micropore volume. The ability to use a stronger acid without damaging the zeolite material results in a less expensive process capable of producing mesoporous zeolite materials suitable for a wide range of uses.

Compositions and methods for preparing a catalyst composition containing mesoporous materials are described herein. In particular, various embodiments described herein relate to the preparation of catalytic compositions containing a mesoporous zeolite and one or more catalytic nanoparticles dispersed therein. In various embodiments described herein, such catalyst compositions can be used in various catalytic conversion processes, such as hydrocracking.


Methods for enhancing the mesoporosity of a zeolite-containing material. Such methods may comprise contacting a composite shaped article containing at least one zeolite and at least one non-zeolitic material with at least one pH controlling agent and at least one surfactant. Such methods may be performed under conditions sufficient to increase the pore volume of at least one 10 angstrom subset of mesoporosity.
