Abstract

Direct epoxidation of propene using hydrogen and oxygen on gold-titania catalyst was studied. A series of low gold loaded catalysts were tested for catalytic activity, hydrogen efficiency and stability. A thorough kinetic study was done on the best catalysts. Finally, a reaction mechanism was proposed to explain the experimental data.
