Insights into the nature of the active sites of tin‐montmorillonite for the synthesis OME

In this study, we report that intercalation of tin into montmorillonite clay (Sn‐MMT) boosts catalytic activity for the synthesis of polyoxymethylene dimethyl ethers, a promising diesel fuel additive. This increase in activity is attributed to the formation of a hierarchical catalyst displaying high surface area with accessible Brønsted and Lewis acid…
