Modified Zeolitic Catalysts for the Adamantane Synthesis
Department of Organic Technology, Institute of Chemical Technology, Prague
NaY and HY zeolites were modified by the ion exchange for Ca and La ions and used as catalysts for the adamantane synthesis by isomerization of endo-tricyclodecane. The presence of Ca and La ions enhances the NaY zeolite activity and slightly decreases the HY zeolite activity. CaHY and LaHY zeolites show a higher selectivity for adamantane.
