An aluminum-rich MSE-type zeolite (Si/Al is as small as 7) has been successfully synthesized in a remarkably short crystallization period of only 3 days by the hydrothermal conversion of an FAU-type zeolite, presumably by the assembly of four-membered-ring (4-R) aluminosilicate oligomers supplied by the double 6-R (D6R) components of the FAU framework with the aid of the structure-directing agents and seed crystals. The dealuminated version of the aluminum-rich MSE-type zeolite showed a high level of coke durability in addition to a significant yield of propylene, which indicates that this novel zeolitic material is suitable for industrial applications as a highly selective and long-lived catalyst.
