Adsorption of neopentane on HNaY-FAU zeolite was studied by IR spectroscopy. At beam temperature neopentane already shows a weak interaction with Brønsted acidic sites. At high temperatures, irreversible consumption of both Brønsted and Lewis sites is observed. According to the results of quantum chemical calculations a proton attack on the central carbon of neopentane seems to be favoured.
