Abstract

A novel reusable Lewis acid catalyst has been prepared by the heterogenization of a Lewis acid/tetrapropylammonium adduct; anchoring of tin chloride on quaternary ammonium chloride functionalized MCM-41 yielded a catalyst with higher activity compared to the corresponding silica analogue in terms of turnover rates and product yield in the Prins condensation of isobutene and formaldehyde to isoprenol.
