Title
Selective epoxidation of styrene with air catalyzed by CoOx and CoOx/SiO2 without any reductant
Abstract

Cobalt oxide (CoOx) prepared by a direct calcination of cobalt nitrate was considerably active for the epoxidation of styrene with air in DMF under mild conditions. A substrate conversion of 75.8 mol% with an epoxide selectivity of 82.1% was achieved at 353 K over 10 mg of cobalt oxide catalyst. Once CoOx was loaded on the support SiO2 through a simple procedure consisting of wet impregnation, drying and calcination, the as-prepared catalyst presented higher catalytic activity and epoxide selectivity than cobalt oxide itself. Over the optimized catalyst CoOx/SiO2 (1.0 wt% Co), 85.7 mol% of styrene was effectively converted at 363 K within 4 h, with a high epoxide selectivity up to 86.0%. The results showed that many factors influenced the performance of the catalyst, such as the Co loading, the support, the temperature and the atmosphere, etc. The leaching of cobalt from the catalyst CoOx/SiO2 was negligible, indicating the applicability of the catalyst CoOx/SiO2 as a true heterogeneous catalyst. The control test and UV–vis spectra revealed a synergic interaction among solvent, oxygen and substrate over CoOx/SiO2.
