We will synthesize a variety of supported metal-oxide catalysts e.g., V, Nb, Ta to study the formation and reaction of M-OOH moieties with organic reactants to determine the rates, selectivity, and mechanism for small molecule oxidation. We will synthesize a series of similarly structured metal-oxide catalysts by depositing low loadings 0.2 - 3 wt. of V, Nb, Ta, Ti, etc. precursors onto silica by SEA and into zeolite frameworks by treating zeolite with moderate aluminum content e.g., SiAl 25 with strong HNO3 solutions followed by metal-ion exchange.
