- ... Cristobalite, a crystalline form of silica, is shown to be formed within an amorphous titanosilicate, at previously unknown conditions. Mesoporous titanosilicate microspheres (MTSM) were synthesized as efficient catalysts for the epoxidation of cyclohexene with tert-butyl hydroperoxide. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy revealed the presence of crystals in this predominantly amorpho ...
