Graphical Abstract: The aim of the work was to study the isomerization of limonene on zeolite-containing biporous acid catalysts based on kaolin (from Ukraine). Results of this study show that at 160°C, the maximum isomer yield was 60–65% with an 80–90% conversion. The studied samples do not have a significant accumulation of carbonaceous deposits because limonene has high solubility, which helps to remove intermediate products of transformation from the surface of the samples.
