  • Abstract Monobutyl itaconate (MBI) are commercially prepared by using freshly distilled acetyl chloride as catalysts, which, however, always results in complicated purification processes due to the usage of water-carrying agents. Here, we report the highly selective production of MBI by using zeolite-based hierarchical porous materials as catalysts in the esterification between itaconic acid and n -butyl alcohol. Two typical hierarchically porous-structured catalysts, namely hierarchical… CONTINUE READING
