Oligomerization of light olefins into liquids provides a useful source of fuel additives. Here, we present the synthesis and oligomerization activity of a Ni-exchanged zincosilicate molecular sieve with *BEA topology. This material can convert approximately 25% of propylene into oligomers (exclusively 2-hexene and 4-methyl-2-pentene in a 1:1 ratio) at 300°C.
