The template ion exchange of chromium cations into FSM-16 (#16 Folded Sheets Mesoporous Materials) for 247 h resulted in a 2.89 wt % incorporation of those cations into the FSM-16, although only a 0.3 wt % incorporation had previously been reported. The XRD pattern of the resultant solid (Cr-FSM-16) showed that the hexagonal structure characteristic of FSM-16 remained after the 2.89 wt % incorporation of chromium cations. XPS could be used to detect the Cr3+ and Cr6+ species on the surface of Cr-FSM-16. A pre-edge peak that was due to a tetrahedrally coordinated Cr6+ species was confirmed in the XANES spectrum of the Cr-FSM-16, which showed that the coordination state around some Cr species was similar to that around the Si species in FSM-16. With the increase in the amount of chromium cations in FSM-16, its catalytic activity and stability during the oxidative dehydrogenation of isobutane were evidently improved.
