Abstract

Nano porous hydroxyapatite possessing acid-base functionality has been successfully synthesized by a simple hydrothermal method using P123 tri-block co-polymer as a structure directing agent. The material exhibited excellent catalytic activity for the production of solketal (100% selectivity) from bio-glycerol (90% conversion).
