The catalytic properties of Al-MCM-41 materials having varied Al contents and pore sizes, were evaluated by means of 1,3,5-triisopropylbenzene (1,3,5-TiPB) cracking reaction. It is found that, while the overall activity increases linearly with increasing Al content of the Al-MCM-41, the catalytic ability per active site is mainly controlled by the dispersion of acid sites.
