In this work we studied the catalytic performance in the gas phase ethylation of phenol of two zeolites with particular porous structures (HZSM5 and HMCM22). HMCM22 formed p-ethylphenol as a major product, at  523 K ethanol/phenol molar ratio of 1, p-EP yield of 40% was achieved  with selectivity of 60%.
