By Jens Weitkamp,Lothar Puppe

Zeolites ensue in nature and feature been recognized for nearly 250 years as alumino­ silicate minerals. Examples are clinoptilolite, mordenite, offretite, ferrierite, erionite and chabazite. this day, every one of these and lots of different zeolites are of significant curiosity in heterogeneous catalysis, but their evidently taking place types are of constrained worth as catalysts simply because nature has now not optimized their homes for catalytic functions and the evidently happening zeolites often include undesired impurity stages. It used to be merely with the arrival of artificial zeolites within the interval from approximately 1948 to 1959 (thanks to the pioneering paintings of R. M. Barrer and R. M. Milton) that this type of porous fabrics started to playa position in catalysis. A landmark occasion was once the creation of man-made faujasites (zeolite X in the beginning, zeolite Y a little later) as catalysts in fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) of heavy petroleum distillates in 1962, essentially the most very important chemical methods with a world means of the order of 500 million t/a. in comparison to the formerly used amorphous silica-alumina catalysts, the zeolites weren't purely orders of importance extra lively, which enabled drastic strategy engineering advancements to be made, yet additionally they caused an important bring up within the yield of the objective product, viz. motor fuel. With the massive FCC capability around the globe, the extra price of this yield enhancement is of the order of 10 billion US $ in keeping with year.
