The zeolite-catalyzed alkylation of phenol with propylene is investigated. First, the reaction pathway was established using a series of reactions involving the reactants and/or expected intermediate products. Second, the zeolite topology was varied to understand the role of zeolites structure in controlling the 2-/4-distribution in the alkylated products.
