The sulfanilic acid was immobilized onto rice husk ash (RHA) sili ca via 3-(chloropropyl)triethoxysilane to form a new catalyst denoted as RHAPhSO 3H. The BET surface area 2 −1 was found to be 308 m g with a narrow pore diameter of 8.93 nm. Pyridine -FT-IR adsorption study revealed the presence of Brønsted acid sites. Elemental analysis of RHAPhSO 3H by EDX and CHN confirmed the presence of S (10.88 %) and N (10.37 %). In alkylation of phenol, RHAPhSO 3H yielded 95 % conversion of TBA at 120 °C with mole ratio of TBA:phenol = 1:1 with high selectivity towards 4 -tertbytylphenol (4-TBP = 52 %) with some by products. The high conversion and selectivity for 4 -TBP could be due to its strong acidity as observed by Pyridine-FT-IR. The catalyst can be reused several times without significant loss of catalytic activity. MAT-O8 LOW TEMPERATURE SYNTHESIS OF ZnSnO3 AT Al-Hinai and MH Al-Hinai Department of Chemistry, College of Science, Sultan Qaboos Unive rsity, Alkoud, Sultanate of Oman E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org ZnSO3 particles were synthesized at low temperature. The pH of a solution containing stoichiometric 2+ 4+ amounts of Zn and Sn was controlled in order to precipitate the ZnSnO3 in one step at low temperature. The particles produced where identified using powder X -Ray Diffraction. Scanning electron microscope images show that the particles are monodispersed cubes with an average size of two microns. 146 3rd ICYC 2010 Universiti Sains Malaysia MAT-O9 23rd-25th June 2010 MECHANOCHEMICAL SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF CALCIUM DOPED CERIA SYSTEM
