New solid acid catalysts, consisting of heteropoly acid H 3PW 12 O 40 (PW) and supported on a mesoporous molecular sieve MCM-41, have been prepared, and characterized by X-ray diffraction, ammonia temperature programmed desorption, nitrogen physisorption techniques. For the alkylation of benzene with 1-dodecene, the PW/MCM-41 composition with various PW loads has been investigated and compared with HY zeolite about the effect of the composition, acidity and pore structure on their catalytic performance. The PW/MCM-41 catalysts with PW load of 10%～50%(wt) have stronger acidity and size-uniformed mesopores because MCM-41 frameworks has been mostly kept and the heteropoly acid dispersed uniformly on the MCM-41 surface. The alkylation performance of the PW/MCM-41 compositions can be effectively controlled by modulating PW loads and pretreating temperature. As compared to HY zeolite, the typical mesoporous catalyst with PW loads of 50 wt% exhibits not only much higher catalytic activity, stability and selectivity towards linear alkylbenzenes but also reasonable isomer distributions of phenyl dodecance than that of HY zeolite in the alkylation reaction.
