The thesis has been focused on synthesis and catalytic application of macroscopic and hierarchical zeolite beads using hard templating techniques. The hierarchical porosity containing larger meso- and macropores are useful to decrease the diffusion limitation which is a drawback of inherently microporous zeolites. These structured zeolites were used as heterogeneous catalysts in several reactions such as acylation, acetalization, biobased up-grading and epoxidation reactions.
