Nowadays, it is of utmost importance to design synthetic methods, which can be utilized for the generation of substances that will minimize toxicity to the health of humans and the environment. The utilization of acid catalysts generates lots of corrosive and harmful wastes, which have to be treated with appropriate alkalis. Hence, it generates lots of sludge and alarms environmental issues of its storage and disposal. Zeolites and Zeotypes, by virtue of their peculiar properties, such as specific morphology, porosity and residing acidity, are gaining enormous attention as they replace harmful acid catalysts efficiently and also reduce chemical waste in the industrial process; hence, emerged as a new plethora in the field of “Green Chemistry”.
