The role of Lewis and Brönsted acidities in alkylation of resorcinol is demonstrated through the gallium-zeolite beta by varying the amount of Lewis and Brönsted acid sites. The synergism of Lewis and Brönsted acid sites take place heterogeneously in Friedel-Crafts alkylation of resorcinol with methyl tert-butyl ether to produce 4-tert-butyl resorcinol and 4,6-di-tert-butyl resorcinol as the major and minor products, respectively.
