Epoxidation of alkenes through oxygen activation over a bifunctional CuO/Al2O3 catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

The epoxidation of alkenes was carried out over a CuO/Al2O3 catalyst using cumene as an oxygen carrier, through a one-pot reaction, giving high conversion and selectivity with different substrates. Trans-β-methylstyrene gave the corresponding epoxide in 95% yield after 3 h.
