Abstract: The oxidation of cyclohexane with molecular oxygen in the presence of isobutyraldehyde catalyzed by nanostructured iron and cobalt oxides and iron oxide supported on titania has been studied. Nanostructured cobalt oxide on MCM-41 is found to be efficient for catalytic aerobic epoxidation of olefins.
