β-MCM41 composite molecular sieves were hydrothermally synthesized using NaOH treated β zeolite as precursors, and Pt/β-MCM41
bifunctional catalysts were prepared by impregnation. Hβ, desilicated Hβ by NaOH treatment (Dβ), and the physical mixture
of Hβ and MCM41 (β+MCM41) were also used as control supports for bifunctional catalysts. All the catalysts were characterized
by ICP, XRD, BET, nitrogen adsorption–desorption isotherm and NH3-TPD, and evaluated in the hydroisomerization of n-heptane using an atmospheric fixed bed flow reactor. Dβ, β+MCM41, or β-MCM41 supported Pt catalysts showed higher selectivity
to isoheptanes than the counterpart Pt/Hβ did due to the presence of mesopores in addition to the zeolite micropores. Moreover,
Pt/β-MCM41 was demonstrated to be a much more selective catalyst among them because the connection between mesopores and micropores
accelerated the diffusion of larger molecules of isoheptanes. Under optimal conditions, Pt/β-MCM41 provided a very high selectivity
to isomerization of 96.5%, coupled with a considerable high conversion of n-heptane of 56.0%.

Interaction between 1-methylnaphthalene and alkali-metal X and Y zeolites has been investigated using TPD. All spectra show
only a single peak, the temperature of which changes with the nature and amount of the alkali-metal cation and the Si/Al ratio
of the faujasite. A correlation between peak temperature and average charge of structural oxygen atoms of the zeolite is shown.
On the basis of the atomic charge distribution in the 1-methylnaphthalene molecule, it is, suggested that adsorption is initiated
by interaction between the alkali-metal cation and the carbon atom of the methyl group. Simultaneously, an interaction involving
hydrogens atoms of the aromatic rings and structural oxygen atoms of the zeolite occurs, except for X samples containing high
amounts of large alkali-metal cations.
