In the past few decades, the advent and development of sophisticated computational
techniques have witnessed the prosperity of zeolites in heterogeneous catalysis. In this
chapter, we will review the recent achievements on acidity characterization, hydrothermal
stability, active sites and reaction mechanisms as well as computational designs of defect
sites and surface catalysis. The ab initio and QM/MM calculations indicated that the
three-valent cations (X = Al, B, Fe, Ga) are distributed unequally in the various
crystallographic T sites of zeolites. The Brönsted acidities of all the T sites were
determined, and their interacting information with adsorbents greatly helps to understand
the first and crucial step of acid catalysis by zeolites. As the vital factor restricting the
industrial applications, the hydrothermal stability of zeolites can be improved by certain
additives with the mechanisms understood by the combined solid-state NMR and density
functional theory studies. Moreover, the electrostatic potential was found to be the good
criterion to measure the hydrothermal stabilities of various modified zeolites. In contrast
to the conventional expoxidation routes of alkenes, the oxidation of styrene on the
mixture of TS-1/H2O2 proceeds in a radical mechanism, starting from the η2-TiOO•
active site to the hemiacetal species, and then under acidic conditions to the product
phenylacetaldehyde. Two types of Lewis acidic sites (TiLAI and TiLAII) were identified
in TS-1 zeolite, corresponding to the 31P MAS NMR peaks at -34.2 and -32.0 ppm,
respectively. The oxidation of trimethylphosphine is a Lewis-acid assisted process, and
the calculated Mulliken charge and geometries satisfactorily elucidated the better
catalytic performance of TiLAI rather than TiLAII. A novel defect site was designed in
TS-1 zeolite settling numerous experimental puzzles, which is responsible for the
weakest Brönsted acidity among all the found zeolites. With the qualitative increases of
computational precisions, the unequal acidities and reaction selectivities along different
zeolite surfaces were thus predicted. In this way, the computational techniques have been
used to design better catalysts. More fruitful results on the computational designs are
expected on basis of the in-depth understanding on structures and properties.
