AMBROZIAK, K. ... et al, 2009. Greener alkene epoxidations via use of novel polymer-supported Mo(VI) catalysts in a continuous reactive distillation process. 8th World Congress of Chemical Engineering (WCCE8), Montréal, Canada, 23-27 August, 2009.
A polybenzimidazole supported Mo(VI) (PBI.Mo) catalyst has been prepared and
characterised. The catalytic activities of the PBI.Mo catalyst in epoxidation of alkene with
tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) as oxidant have been studied under different reaction
conditions in a batch reactor. The batch experimental data provided useful information for
conducting continuous experiments in a reactive distillation column (RDC).
