MFI structural zeolite (ZSM-5 or Sililcalite) was treated with HF solution to introduce mesoporous channels in the microporous crystals. Inner mesopore size could be controlled from 2.5 to 3.5 nm by changing the concentration of HF solution. The pore structure of HF-treated MFI zeolite was studied by instrumental analysis. The active Co (III) salen complex monomers were successfully anchored non-covalently on the surfaces of mesoporous MFI-type zeolite. These heterogeneous catalysts could be applied in asymmetric ring opening of terminal epoxides by phenol derivatives. It showed very high enantioselectivity and yield up to 95% in the catalytic synthesis of optically active α-aryloxy alcohol compounds.
