|Title:||Factors responsible for the activity of alumina surfaces in the catalytic epoxidation of cis-cyclooctene with aqueous H2O2|
|Abstract:||The structural, textural, and chemical properties as well as the hydrophilicity of four different sol-gel aluminas were determined by different methods and compared with their activity in the catalytic epoxidation of cis-cyclooctene with aqueous H2O2. It was found that the hydrophilicity of the gamma-alumina surface is the principal factor responsible for the difference in catalytic activity. The hydrophilicity of gamma-alumina should be sufficient to guarantee a fast reaction with hydrogen peroxide on the surface but should not to be too high in order to allow the approach of olefin to the active sites.
