A novel, one-step synthesis of a highly stable mesoporous molecular sieve (MMS-H), which has a structure analogous to MCM-48 but which contains zeolite building units, is reported. A variety of experimental techniques-X-ray diffraction (XRD), N2 adsorption/desorption, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, hyperpolarized 129XeNMR, and solid-state 27Al and 31P magic-angle spinning (MAS) NMR spectroscopies - have been used to characterize the framework structure, porosity, and acidity of this novel mesoporous/microporous composite material, which is also found to possess superior thermal, hydrothermal, steam, and mechanical stabilities.
