This review is concerned about catalytic gas-phase oxidation reactions in microreactors, typically being performed in wall-coated microchannels. Not included are liquid and gas-liquid oxidations which are typically done in reactor designs different from the ones considered here. The first part of the review is dedicated to briefly summarize selected chemical micro process engineering with selective oxidations done in the past ten years or so. Besides applications in the process development for fine chemicals intermediates and bulk chemicals, the energy market has posed requests on selective oxidation as one gas purification step in the framework of fuel processing for fuel cells. Selected literature works are shown and followed by own developments.
