Abstract

A DFT study of the cracking reaction of thiophene catalyzed by zeolite is reported. The use of different zeotype catalysts (viz. acidic, metal-exchanged and methoxy) has been shown to successfully induce this reaction. It appears that the thiophene cracking reaction is catalyzed by a basic Lewis site and that acid Bronsted site has only a limited influence on the reaction.
