A mesostructured sulfated tin oxide with large surface area (172 m(2)/g) has been successfully prepared using a block copolymer as structure-directing agent, which is extensively characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), nitrogen adsorption, and Thermogravimetric analysis (TG) techniques. The results indicate that the mesostructured sulfated tin oxide was tetragonal crystalline, and catalytic tests show that the mesostructured sulfated tin oxide is much more active than conventional one for esterification and Friedel-Crafts acylation.
