Abstract

A much greener synthesis method is discovered for the synthesis of 3,4-epoxytetrahydrofuran (ETHF), an important synthetic intermediate for stereo-controllable synthesis of complex organic compounds. 3,4-ETHF is synthesized with a conversion >95% and a selectivity >99% through a heterogeneous epoxidation of 2,5-dihydrofuran (DHF) with hydrogen peroxide in the liquid phase over a novel titanosilicate catalyst, Ti-MWW.
