The hydrothermal synthesis of indium containing beta zeolite has been reported. The efficiency of the synthesis depends mainly on the concentration of indium, synthesis temperature, and pH of the gel. Beta indium has been synthesized in a range of different SiO2/In2O3 ratios using tetraethylammonium ion as a template. For SiO2/In2O3 ratio around 40, beta indium was obtained as a pure phase with a good yield. The product was contaminated with ZSM-5 in case of low In2O3 content. If the synthesis is carried out at higher temperatures the possibility of the formation of ZSM-5 increases, whereas lowering the temperature takes longer, about 10-14 days. Upon calcination to remove the organic template, some demetallation occurs which lowers the crystallinity. Indium species present in the beta zeolite framework were characterized by IR NMR. The extra framework indium species probably exist in a cationic state. The catalytic activity of the sample was tested by the benzoylation reaction of naphthalene.
