The MTH process is recognized as one of the key ingredients of the methanol (MeOH) economy concept enabling the production of crucial hydrocarbon building blocks, such as light olefins and aromatics, starting from CO2 as the primary carbon source. Besides the driving force of reducing reliance on fossil fuels, the highly tunable nature of this process in response to rapidly changing market demands attracts continuous process development by industry. In academia, proposing comprehensive structure-performance relationships relying on a deeper understanding of the complex reaction pathways makes MTH a perfect model reaction system for new porous material synthesis and catalyst design...
