The catalytic potential of catalysts for acid-catalyzed reactions has been demonstrated by NaY zeolite loaded with alkylsilane-covered niobic acid in the liquid phase hydration of 1,2-epoxyoctane with water. The catalytic activity of the catalysts was correlated to the amphiphilic character of the solid catalyst particles.
- Amphiphilic zeolite particles,
