Abstract:

The regular cavities within zeolite form a unique environment for carrying out both stoichiometric and catalytic oxidation reactions. Transition metal ions such as molybdenum and cobalt may be introduced into zeolites, where they form complexes with oxidants and substrate ligands. The objectives of the research were a to understand oxidation reactions in zeolites at a molecular level and b to evaluate the potential of zeolites as catalysts in selective oxidation reactions.
