Zeolites are known as microporous silicoaluminate crystals, which are widely applied in adsorption and catalysis. In 1962, zeolite X was first employed in the catalytic cracking process and zeolites are now recognized as most important catalytic materials in petrochemical industry. Many zeolite-catalyzed reactions have been commercialized in large scale, however, significant debates on the nature of zeolite catalysis do exist. In this lecture, I will summarize some recent research progresses in my group, including: 1) Mechanism of typical zeolite-catalyzed reactions; 2) Methodology in identification of reactive intermediates during reaction; 3) Construction of isolated framework Lewis acidic site; and 4) Zeolite-based complex systems.
LI Landong is a professor at School of Materials Science and Engineering, Nankai University, Tianjin, PR China. Having obtained his academic degrees from Nankai University, he started his career at Research Center for Eco-environmental Sciences, CAS, working in the field of environmental catalysis. In 2009, he moved back to Nankai University, where he was promoted to full professor in 2014. Professor Li directs comprehensive researches in the field of heterogeneous catalysis, with focuses on zeolite catalysis. In his group, advanced spectroscopy techniques are employed in catalysis researches to realize the characterization of catalytic materials and processes in the atomic/molecular level, aiming to reveal the nature of catalysis and guide the rational design of catalysts. Professor Li has authored over 100 scientific publications and filed over 20 patents. He has also received several awards, including the New Century Excellent Talents in University by the Ministry of Education, PR China (2011) and the National Science Fund for Excellent Young Scholars, PR China (2017).
