Abstract

The conversion of cyclohexanol was investigated over MeAPO-5 [Me = Mg, Co, Mn and Zn]. The acidity of the catalysts was correlated with the ionic radii of Me atoms incorporated into the structure of the catalysts. Based on this correlation, it is suggested that the distortion of structure by the larger Me atoms was associated with the T–O–P angle and hence the acid strength.
