Zeolite-based heterogeneous catalysts are used by industrial chemical companies in the interconversion of hydrocarbons and the alkylation of aromatic compounds.
The ZSM-5 zeolite catalyst is used in the petroleum industry for hydrocarbon interconversion.
An example use is in the isomerizations of xylene- from meta to para-xylene. The acidic zeolite promotes carbocation isomerizations. There are two suggested mechanisms for this type of isomerizations.
Firstly shape may play a role. Perhaps para-xylene has a shape which allows it to diffuse rapidly through the zeolite structure, whereas as meta-xylene takes longer to pass through the zeolite and thus has more opportunity to be converted into the para-xylene.
Secondly, is that the orientation of reactive intermediates within the zeolite channels favors specifically para-xylene.
