Hydrothermal saline promoted grafting:a route to sulfonic acid SBA-15 silica with ultra-high acid site loading for biodiesel synthesis


A simple grafting protocol is reported which affords a ten-fold enhancement in acid site density of mesoporous sulfonic acid silicas compared to conventional syntheses, offering improved process efficiency and new opportunities for tailored supported solid acids in sustainable chemistry.
