Abstract: A pure silica mesoporous molecular sieve analogous to MCM-41 (Si-MCM-41) was organofunctionalised with 3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane. The resulting organofunctionalised Si-MCM-41 ((NC3)Si-MCM-41) was suspended in alcoholic solutions of iron and copper salts to form the respective metal complexes (M(NC3)Si-MCM-41). Iron and copper were also incorporated into the framework of mesoporous MCM-41 metallosilicates (M-MCM-41) by hydrothermal synthesis. Al these catalysts were employed in the liquid phase oxidation of cyclohexane with aqueous H2O2 (30%). The results shaw that the M(NC3)Si-MCM-41 are more active than the corresponding M-MCM-41. The activity of the catalysts decreases in the following order: Fe(NC3)Si-MCM-41 much greater than Fe-MCM-41 much greater than Cu(NC3)Si-MCM-41 much greater than Cu-MCM-41. However, when the catalysts are recycled, leaching of the metals is observed. The good catalytic activity found for Fe(NC3)Si-MCM-41 can be attributed to the heterogenised iron complex.
