A review with 21 refs.; The reaction mechanisms of two transition metal catalyzed reactions are discussed: epoxidn. of ethylene prodn. and vinylacetate. In addn. short ref. will be made to methanol and CO oxidn. The surface reactions are related to the corresponding reactions in organometallic complexes. Also a relation between surface science model studies and surface reactivity will be made. Elementary surface reaction steps on surfaces will be highlighted; subsequently the main mechanistic issues in oxygen CH and OH bond activation will be described
