Aromatic Transalkylation is a key step in the industrial production of xylenes.  UZM-14, a nano-crystalline zeolite with the MOR structure, is shown to be highly active, selective and stable for this reaction.  Mesoporosity and crystallite length are shown to be key variables which correlate with this improved performance.
