High aluminum containing nanoporous aluminosilicate materials, produced by an evaporation-induced self-assembly process, efficiently catalyze the formation of unsymmetrical ethers by a dehydrative etherification reaction in high isolated yields. By carrying out the reaction under dilute conditions, the quantities of reagents can be reduced to near stoichiometric quantities.
